    I have a tablet with Windows 10 Home on it from the factory. If I install Windows 10 Pro on it as a clean install, will it keep the entitlement? I'm only asking because I would be installing a different version of Windows 10 than what came with it.

    I know you can upgrade with a Pro key but it has a boatload of crappy software on it installed at the factory, I want to start clean.

    Thanks guys.

    I would be very careful with that!!

    At least, first things I would do is to save all driver to a external Storage. Using Windows PowerShell for that you could easy do that job. Just open PowerShell and type the command:

    Code:
    Export-WindowsDriver -Online -Destination D:\driverBackup (where D:\ is your external storage device)

    That will write all Windows driver to your external storage in full details.


    All other drivers, you may have to save extra, so be carefully what you're doing!

    The 10 oem:Dm key is only for the pre-installed windows version, in this case 10 Home.
