    Hi Everyone,

    Here is my question,

    How can I upgrade my windows 10 home to windows 10 pro.

    My machine came with windows 10 home(surface pro 6)


    I remember that back in previous windows edition(maybe windows 7)
    we could add a new key (depending on the brand of machine you had) and the key will "convert " to windows pro edition.

    Thank you for all your help.

    Now that the windows 10 is a pro version...

    how do I go about activation?
    is activation required for downloading updates?

    KMS_VL_ALL for KMS activation or search for massgravel for hwid activation.
    Updates don't require activation.

    Have you tried installing Windows 7 Pro on your Surface, using the official free upgrade to Windows 10, and no need for any crack?

    Check my answer in your thread.

    HWID activation is not a crack, it just uses a loophole by MSFT activation, resulting hwid will be the exact same.

    Surface have windows 10 as a standard.... so going to windows 7 will be a downgrade and not really useful ....

    because this will mean knowing that you are on windows (something) and by default 10, then going to windows 7 to go to windows 10 for me this sound like nonsense....

    I suggested the downgrade to Windows 7 to take advantage of the official free upgrade to Windows 10. (I was not aware of the recent better methods)

    You can install Pro version of Windows 7 and activate with Daz Loader.

    Install Pro's default Retail key and activate with HWID activator is the most convenient.
