Hello,

I am currently running Windows 7 Enterprise. Can I buy a Windows 10 Pro license and do an upgrade with it? Or do I have to purchase an Windows 10 Enterprise license?

 

Thanks,

Bill

According to Microsoft you would have to upgrade to Enterprise.

There are two different types of installations in this situation.  This would either be a fresh installation of Windows 10 or a upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10.  If this is a fresh installation you can purchase and install any version of Windows 10 you wish to purchase.  If you are going to do a upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 you have to use the same version as the Windows 7.

dc3, if you take a look at the link I posted you can upgrade or downgrade to different versions.  Since Windows 10 doesn't come in all of the different versions that Windows 7 has a same version upgrade may not be possible.  For instance you can go from Windows 7 Starter edition to Windows 10 Home or Professional.

Yep... I missed that.  But it will not matter if the op is purchasing a license for Windows 10, they would be doing a fresh install rather than a upgrade.

Thanks guys... I appreciate the quick response.

I was hoping to do an upgrade so I wouldn't have to reinstall software and data. Which ever way is the least expensive vs time consuming.
