Yoga 920 Windows Pro upgrade support?

2017-11-23, 16:09 PM

Wanted to see if anyone else updated their Yoga 920(new 8th gen Intel) to Windows Pro from Windows Home and have any issues? I need it for virtualization/Hyper-V support

I upgraded from Home to Education on my 920. From the picture attached, it appears Education includes all the features of pro. I had zero issues. 

I used the (change product key or upgrade edition) option, typed in my education licence key and pressed ok. About 10-30 mins later (I forgot), it was done. I have had zero concerns since the upgrade.

I had one that I used to write a tech review, and I installed a clean copy of win 10 pro.  I had no issues.

So you didnt use the recovery partition at all for the clean install? Not wise to do the upgrade of the Win10 Home that ships with it?

 

thanks!

I upgraded the existing install using a Windows Pro product key, and have had no issues. I did need to run Disk Cleanup after to clean up the installation files.
