Windows 10, Domain Authentication 2008/2012 domain

I have a problem with 3 brand new HP Envy laptop's - after upgrading from Home to Win 10 Pro they join an existing domain (of 50+ machines) but refuse to logon with valid user or admin credentials.  At the very same time four ASUS laptops joined and function perfectly.  

This has to be something on the HP factory image but I'm struggling to find a solution.

any ideas, other than a Win10 reset.

Run all the Windows 10 updates. If they aren't yet at build 1607, install that build first, then run the updates.

Download the newest iso of Windows 10 from the m$ site, then mount the iso file and run setup.exe to update to the newest build.

yes it is up-to-date and at the anniversary update build Version 10.0.14393

I'm shocked that HP refuse to even think about it/help, stating they don't support Pro because it came with Home.

I'm trying to confirm this, but I don't think the client is even attempting to authenticate with the DC, the PC's are in AD and joined the domain normally.

This is a known issue with the upgrade from Home to Pro. You will likely need to rebuild the machines.
