Update to Windows 10 professional

Hello.

We need to get a confirmation (possibly from Intel) if is possible:

  1. Upgrade the Compute Stick from W10 Home to W10 Professional.
  2. Upgrading it also using - for example - Acronis True Image or others similar tools.
  3. Is it possible to purchase it without OS and instal it later using a ISO image?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, you can upgrade to Win10 Pro. I have done this. Make dure you have as much free space on the flash as possible.

You should be able to image the disk. This I haven't tried, however.

As far as I know, you cannot purchase without OS.

Hope this helps,

I have done to, as Mr N. Scott Pearson, and lose Windows 8.1 licence.

It is necessary to upgrade the firmware before, and this results in the deletion of windows keys in hardware. This loses licensed version (that you paid), but now it is no longer important because the upgrade to Windows X has to pay, since the deadline for a free upgrade expired. My advice: leave it as it is.

Hello Zlatko.

I'm asking these question because the company were I work would use this "stick" for a professional usage.

Probably the Win 10 Pro will be updated through an image. Anyway we (or our final customer) have the Win 10 Pro license keys.

We want only to be sure that the HW fully support the Pro version.

Thank you.

Hello Didi71,

Based on this document http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/intel-compute-stick/000005899.html Supported Operating Systems for Intel® Compute Stick, the majority of the Intel® Compute Stick models support the upgrade.

Regards,

Amy.
