    Hi,

    Got an Dell XPS 13 and it came with Win 7 Pro (I think Pro) and it auto upgraded to Win 10 Home. Is there any way anyone know to install a dell certificate for Win 10 Pro and unlock Pro features?

    Thanks

    It says Win 10 Home. I swear my notebook came with Win 8.1 Pro not Win 7 my mistake.

    Thanks

    Impossible...
    Home and Pro are two different versions and you can't upgrade a Home-version to Pro without installing a Windows 7 or 8 Pro-version first.
    Yes, you can 'clean install' a Pro-version over a Home-version but then your Pro-version wil not be activated.
    But since you've upgraded it can only be Windows 8.1 Home > Windows 10 Home.
