  • Hi Poppy_th.

    Your PC can run Windows 10 Pro, as per OS requirements specified in the Microsoft Knowledge Base article 4028142.
    Anyway, there's an important caveat related to the CPU: 
    Intel Xeon processors are supported on Windows 10 Pro for Workstations and Windows 10 Enterprise only, as you can read at
