Installing Windows 8 Pro downloaded from Microsoft in a Toshiba notebook that came pre-installed with w8pro
Posted on 2016-10-08
We have a TOSHIBA Satellite s855-5381 that came with Windows 8 Pro pre-install; no CDs came with the computer. We have a new hard drive and need to reinstall Windows 8 Pro again. We have various ISO and after installing a w8pro ISO the computer says “Windows 8” not “Windows 8 Professional”. We need to it say Professional (our product keys are for w8pro). If we cannot get the Windows 8 Pro OS from Toshiba, Microsoft offers free download of Windows 8 Pro.
Can we install the Microsoft download ISO of Windows 8 Pro? (since it's not from Toshiba)
Would we have problem using them to MS ISO?
