Windows 8 upgrade to Pro. Can I use my Windows 8 Pro Upgrade to do this? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a new laptop that came with Windows 8 (Non Pro).  I have the Microsoft Windows 8 Pro Upgrade that I purchased a few months ago.  Can I use this software to upgrade my Windows 8 on my laptop to the Pro edition?  I know you can buy the Pro Pack to do this but I rather not spend more money when I already have purchsed the Pro upgrade.

  • Yes this works. I did the same to upgrade my Dell OEM Win8 (Core) to Windows 8 Pro.
