Windows 10 Pro "N"??!!! Help!

Hi there,

I just built my first pc and booted using an USB drive where I installed Windows 10. I am pretty sure that I chose to install Windows 10 Pro. However, now that I am all setup, it says "Windows 10 Pro N" in my system information. I bought a key for windows to activate it and it apparently does not work as I am on the "N" version!

Help!

Do I need to reinstall everything? Is there another workaround? Can I repair the system?

N is just a europe version with no media features, install the normal one.

 

Reinstall is the easy way to fix.

 Thanks for your comment! Can I also "repair" the system using the boot drive or do I have to make a complete re-install? I will probably lose all the drivers that I already installed, etc...

 

So for re-installing, just boot again from the usb flash drive?

How much work are drivers? just let it auto install for you, not to much do to

 

Yea Id just boot from usb and wipe.
