    Hi all,

    The previous version in my PC was windows 7 ultimate SP1. And when I checked to see if it was a genuine windows, it always showed, "cannot verify if windows is genuine". I installed windows 10 recently (windows 10 pro) and found out that I need to activate windows. So I am assuming the previous version (windows 7 ultimate) installed in my PC wasn't genuine.

    I noticed there are two options 'windows home' and 'windows pro'. Can I buy windows home (which is cheaper) instead of windows pro (which is expensive)? Once again, I have windows 10 pro currently installed.

    I would imagine you could get the windows 10 home and do a clean install.

    Was just going to say the same thing.
    You would need to download the W10 home ISO and do a clean install.
    Therefore you would lose all data and installed programs.
