About Upgrading to Pro from Home (win)


https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/2098987-unable-to-upgrade-windows-10-home-to-pro

I don’t want to cut-and-paste the article for a number of reasons. If you have Home and do the $99 upgrade to Pro, and your “product number”–always located on the bottom, so things are nice and easy–suddenly becomes invalid, read this carefully and try it. The generic product number there worked for me. My product number was on a newly-bought (and recently made, theoretically–no, hypothetically, sorry) HP computer. I just now used the one given there, and I’m no longer being harassed by that message on all screens except streamed stuff, “Your Windows product number is invalid, please correct”. That isn’t the exact message except in meaning.
