Help System restore after Pro upgrade Windows 10

Windows 10 Trouble : System restore after Pro upgrade
Error Trouble : I bought a laptop with Windows Home. Wanted to run Hyper-V so I upgraded that to Windows Pro through Microsoft Store. Got that working but it leaves me wondering… If I had to reset to factory install, would I loose the Windows Pro upgrade, and have to pay $99 again, or will it reset to the pro version?Thank you!Rob

How to Fix System restore after Pro upgrade on Windows 10?

  1. No. You will not lose your license. It will be saved to your Microsoft account. You simply need to go back to the store and install Windows 10 Pro if you change your mind later on. 🙂
  2. Hi RGB44317-

    I’m Kevin B. Independent Advisor and a Windows user like you. Thank you for sharing your concern, let me help you sort things out.

    Just to let you know factory install will,

    Reinstalls the version of Windows that your PC came with and removes your personal files.
    Removes all apps and drivers you installed.
    It will remove changes you made on the settings.
    Reinstalls any apps your PC manufacturer installed on your PC.

    After you perform factory install i would suggest to follow the steps provided on this link to upgrade your PC to Pro version.

    Thanks for the response.

    You don’t need to worry about getting the Windows 10 Pro back on the computer after the factory reset since the digital license is already linked to your Microsoft account, you can upgrade your computer again back to Windows 10 Pro using the digital license link to your Microsoft account.

    You may also use the Activation troubleshooter if incase the computer won’t detect the Pro upgrade on your computer.
