Open Windows Home and click on the start Pearl.

Then click on the Anytime Upgrade and follow the prompts and enter the Product key for 10 pro when prompted. There is most likely a need to have it connected tot he Net so it can register itself with Microsoft but as I have said previously I've never had the need to attempt this I'm only going on what Microsoft tells us.

That is of course provided that the system is still working and has not developed a fault from trying to install Pro over Home.

If the systerm is not working correctly you'll need to format the drive and use the Product Key on the DVD to activate 10 Pro.
