Upgrade Windows 10 Home to Pro

I have a client who recently wanted to get a Windows 10 Pro PC for >their office. He went to Best Buy but all they had was Home edition. This is not an issue since you can upgrade Home to Pro with a simple license key upgrade. But it turned out that when I went to install the new key, I got an error. Nice! Follow MS’s procedure and get an error…..

BUT, I was able to track down this solution. Install a temp license key that will allow the actual upgrade to work, THEN install the newly purchased key.
