Trying to upgrade 8.1 to 8.1 Pro
Posted on 2014-09-05
I have a Lenovo IdeaPad that came with the standard version of Windows 8.1. I have a disk of the full version of 8.1 Pro, and an upgrade disk of the same.
I have "Upgraded It", and completely wiped it and installed the OS from scratch and all I keep getting is 8.1, not Pro.
The person who purchased the software did so on a site that offers the software as a download. I believe it is legitimate but I'm beginning to think I don't have the correct OS on the disks.
My partner has installed from the full version disk before and says it has worked for him before.
Has anyone heard of something like this?
