    Hi guys,

    will be getting my new Asus UX330UA notebook tomorrow. It comes with 10 home. What would be the easiest way to switch to Windows 10 Pro? Is there a converter or something similiar and a tool to reactivate as Pro?
    Or would I have to download a Pro VL ISO and reinstall from scratch, and then activate?

    Thanks

    If you want a digital license for 10 pro you have to install windows 7 pro or ultimate if you want licensed 10 pro first and activate it with Daz Loader, then follow the instructions in this thread.
    If you just want to activate a clean install of 10 you'll have to use KMS activation.
    The first method is more future proof and takes longer to set up. The second method, KMS, could possibly stop working if MS changes the KMS method. So I'd use the first method unless you just want to do it the quick KMS way.
    I recommend the Windows 7 to 10 method.

    Do the activated 7 pro to 10 pro with Daz' loader method for the least pain.

    The kms emulator will just put the correct key in for the installed windows edition and not use the oem:Dm key.

    What does this even mean, he has OEM of Win 10 Home, I don't care which version of Win 10 he chooses, Win 10 Home will be installed, follow what Enthousiast said :D

    thanks for all your answers so far. still a little bit confused here. so i figure license info is still within the bios slic, right? is there still the way to flash modded bioses with modded slic tables, so the bios tells win 10 it's pro?

    The OEM embedded key for 8.x/10 is called oem:Dm (slic is for vista/7). It can't be modified.
