Found a work around - but not ideal for Windows 10 Home to Pro

  • Unplug/Turn Off internet connection
  • Enter the following generic Windows 10 Pro key
  • VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T
  • system should then upgrade to Pro
  • after reboots etc..  Turn on / Plug in Internet connection
  • Change product key to your offical new product code

Good luck

Windows 10, both home and pro should keep the Windows key in the firmware so that after any update, upgrade or fresh install the Windows key is there and you get the Windows that you paid for. 
Unfortunately many people still have problems such as bought Pro but it resets to Home.

I suggest that when you install Windows, keep a copy of the Windows key in a safe place away from the computer.

Windows registers to the hardware on your system, it stays that way unless you enter the Pro key during the clean install process.
