Now this post is for those of you who perhaps just bought a new laptop and it came together with Windows 10 Home ( by default ) however you then realized that you need more functionality such as Hyper-V and other networking sharing features.
One way of upgrading would be buying it off the Microsoft Store but if you see the price, it is really really expensive. Some of you may think, hey why not I just download a crack or something … then you risk your laptop getting some virus or ransomware or worst a keylogger which may compromise your system and all your accounts and password.
The typical cheapskate that I am, I would try to scour the web for the cheapest yet legal way to get this done without compromising my security.
And I FOUND the SOLUTION !
You sometimes find solutions in the most unexpected place. The website is called G2A ( https://www.g2a.com )
If you just did a search for Windows 10 Pro , you will see numerous sellers selling it and I do suggest that you pick a seller that has the highest rating and have sold a lot.
Once you are done with adding it to your shopping cart you can just put in your email address and click Go to payment
They can literally accept any sort of payment and they even localize those based on your IP address. And YES they also accept BTC as a payment form
Once you are done with the payment and such, you will then receive an email of the purchase that you have just made. It would contain a link where it would reveal your product key to your Windows 10.
You can then read the quick guide if you don’t know how to activate your windows however if you just copy the key and then head over to your Windows 10 Home under the ABOUT tab. Just click change product key and upgrade your Windows
Once you are done, Windows will then perform the upgrade and it may take 1 or 2 restarts but once its done, if you go back to the ABOUT tab, you will see that the Windows Edition is now Window 10 Pro !
So there you go! Instead of spending hundreds of dollars or compromising your system, you bought a genuine activated Windows 10 Pro OEM.
What other features do you get with Windows 10 Pro ?
So only if you want the extra features then I would suggest you to upgrade. The only main reason I choose to upgrade was that I needed Hyper-V which is a Virtual Machine for Windows. This ables me to test out software and run applications without compromising my entire system.
