    Dave – can you upgrade from Home with it without a fresh restart?

    I believe someone here did actually do just that – Drezha? Might have been on the old forum.

    However the keys you get from EBay are for fresh installs only.

    January 3, 2018—KB4056892 (OS Build 16299.192) – just installed OK for me

    – but there appear to be 4 known problems with it – see https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/4056892

    Two of these have no solution as yet :-

    1. Windows Update History reports that KB4054517 failed to install because of Error 0x80070643

    2. When calling CoInitializeSecurity, the call will fail if passing RPC_C_IMP_LEVEL_NONE under certain conditions.

    It isn’t totally satisfactory but zapping all but the mandatory security updates seems to keep the PC on line over the patch Tuesday problem.

    I did indeed. Just put the code in on Windows 10 Home (can’t remember where) and it then updated itself and updated in Win 10 Pro. I can confirm I started with Home and then moved to Pro, because initially I couldn’t install Biotlocker but I could after the update and that’s Windows 10 Pro only (for boot drives IIRC, as a Windows 10 Home can use a Bitlocker drive, but not as a boot device.)

    I once swapped hard drives between two machines, both with Win10.  I didn’t realise but one was Home and one Pro.
    The Home version started auto updating itself to Pro but the Pro version wouldn’t downgrade to Home and wanted me to upgrade or suffer the consequences.
    It wasn’t an issue for me because I was then going to restore the disk images back onto the swapped drives but interesting that everything worked fine, installing motherboard drivers etc without problems.

    As I’ve said before, W10 has been giving me grief because I’m still on 1607 Anniversary Edition and it seriously wants me to upgrade to 1709 Fall Creators Edition, it keeps trying and my download so far this month is currently running at 20gig.

    This in itself doesn’t bother me, I’ve been trying – unsuccessfully – to update to it along the way, but it keeps failing. Current setup is, in itself, working fine.

    I’ve put an SSD in and connected it up, and copied from the 1709 iso all folders and files, so the SSD is sitting with boot, efi, sources, and support folders plus autorun.inf, bootmgr, bootmgr.efi and setup.exe files.

    My aim is to load 1709 onto the SSD, so…. whilst in my current W10 environment, if I click on setup.exe ( on the SSD drive ), will it be installing ( or failing ) onto the SSD or my C drive??

    Sorry if it’s a daft question, but I’ve been in and out of this rabbit hole so much, it’s driving me mad (der?)!!

    I really wouldn’t try it JayCD and especially not on an efi system. If you really want to try it then backup ALL your settings and data first because the chances of a non booting system are fair to good !

    If you only want to put the latest W10 on your ssd then I would disconnect your HD and boot from the installation DVD or USB stick.
