Downgrade lenovo p50 Windows 10 enterprise to windows 10 pro?

2017-02-15, 9:11 AM

I cant activate the enterprise version since I dont have a smart card.

 

So I would like to downgrade, but I dont have a restore disk or another activation code.

How is it possible to change this?

Hello,

 

Try running the Change Product Key (filename: CHANGEPK.EXE) program and entering the Product Key that you have for Windows 10 Pro.  A reboot may be required for the change to take effect.

Thank for the reply

 

Do have to buy another activation code or can I downgrade without it?

Also, I'm wondering where I can find my activation code because it's not on the laptop (however, there's a sticker of windows 10 but no code on it)

Hello,

 

If there is a Windows 10 Pro (or Home) key embedded in the BIOS/UEFI firmware, you can look it up by opening an elevated Command Prompt (filename: CMD.EXE) and issuing the follow command:

 

wmic path softwarelicensingservice get OA3xOriginalProductKey

 

That would be the Product ID key to enter.
