you need to clean install the windows 10 pro  from bootable usb and select the windows 10 pro option from their directly, but the problem is while booting from usb while installation there is not option to select windows 10 pro , in  order to enable that option follow the steps

step 1 - create a bootble windows 10 usb 

step 2 -download this file "ei.cgf" http://windows.intowindows.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/My%20uploaded%20files/EICFG.zip 

step 3 - go to bootble usb drive directory there you will see  a folder name sources open it and paste the "ei.cgf" file there in the source folder

Step 3 - boot the drive and boom there will be option to select windows 10 pro

step 4- select that option then go to settings - update and security - activation- change product key- enter the key there and boom its activated
