    Hi @Giridas T ,

    You can install a Windows Pro version.

    You don't have to even install, just change the product key and it will be upgraded.

    You have to have a Pro key.

    @Giridas T ,

    You can simply create an installation media by using the following link.

    Windows 10 will be automatically activated with the current license after the installation.
