OMEN 880-160se Will Not do In-place Upgrade from Win 10 Home to Pro

HP Recommended
HP OMEN 880-160se
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Win 10 Home (64bit) came preinstalled on the unit.  Attempts to upgrade to WIn 10 Pro (64 bit) by changing the Product key fail.  If I attempt an upgrade using the Windows Media Creation tool I'm only allowed to upgrade back to Win 10 Home.  By inserting a Win 10 Pro dvd the only upgrade option I'm allowed is a clean install.  Shouldn't I be able to go from Win 10 Home (64bit) to Win 10 Pro (64bit) without a clean install??

That should be a very simple task. Please contact Microsoft to get more information:
