Trying to update a Lenovo Legion 5 laptop from Home to Pro. Went to the the MS store on the laptop, paid the $99 to upgrade to Pro, goes through the preparing for upgrade screen says it has download (100%), then get this error "Windows upgrade failed Error Code:0x80070490" on the preparing to upgrade screen.
I close that screen:
On the windows activation screen i get Error Code: 0xC004F034
I have also tried wiping both the drives and did fresh installs of Win10 Pro from a USB but it always comes back Win 10 Home,
Sounds like Win 10 Home is embeded but going to the store and buying the upgrade should have worked as it is a digital license also.
At a loss at the moment...
How to get past this promlem, I have four of these laptops to do...
that is to be expected; a home product key is in the system so windows detects it and activates that
did you try the upgrade after reinstalling? can't fix the initial issue since you already reinstalled
