Windows 7 Enterprise Product Key Change RRS feed

  • Question

  • Because my laptops were originally setup by my employer, and then passed to me when I left the company, the Windows 7 installation on them is Enterprise.  I have new licences and product keys for an Ultimate and a Professional version of Windows 7.  If I simply change the product key can I convert my Enterprise installations to Ultimate and Professional?  Then will they upgrade to Windows 10?

    Thanks.

  • Sorry - you have to do a Clean Install to 'downgrade' from Enterprise to any other edition of Windows.

    Once you have the new installs in place, they should have no problems with upgrading to Windows 10, assuming the hardware is up to it.
