    Bourbon and water for me, with just a little lemon juice!;) Think I'll have one more and hit the sack!
    PS I hope you are creating back up images before doing all these things.:)

    I do like a good bourbon now and then.
    But I lost this second round fight with Windows 10 Pro. I created an ISO of "Windows 10" as it shows in the drop down menu in the Media Creation Tool. Did my clean install, and skadosh, Back to Windows 10 Home, SMH.

    So when you did the upgrade, if you did it back before the activate all Win 7 keys, you may have inadvertently tied it to Windows 10 home. I don't know if it's possible, but you may need to call Microsoft and see if that can be changed.

    Dude, I called twice and both guys were just really rude and short with me haha. I tried calling back a 3rd time and they were close.
    The first guy just wanted remote access to my computer and kept insisting that's what he needed to do.
    The second guy said I have to just purchase the $99 Pro upgrade.
    Geez, smh. I think I'll try calling manana.

    Ugh, yeah English was clearly not their first language, which I don't mind. I've been in a customer service job and dealing with the public is not easy. But these guys clearly didn't care to understand what I was telling them.

    Hey friend! I Know I'm way off subject here, but it's damned hard to find anyone that can do their job these days.
    It's really pathetic. Most are waiting till Friday and pay day so they can get high.
    This old world has gone to Hell in a hand basket:rofl:IMHO!

    Well I finally was able to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro!
    I called Microsoft back the next day. In the end after about 45 minutes on the phone with them, they had to generate a new key for me.
    So I now have BitLocker installed and have all that mess cleaned up. I can finally start re-installing all my programs and download my files.
    Thanks you guys for all the help, I appreciate it!
