HP Recommended
hp spectre x360 13t-aw000
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am using hp spectre x360 13t-aw000 laptop with windows 10 home edition

There are features that windows 10 home edition doesn't have like adding domains, i tried to clean install windows 10 pro but i can't without legacy support.

i tried installing using the win ISO file but failed

How can i  add legacy support in BIOS to manage installing windows 10 pro?

Hi:

 

If you currently have W10 Home installed, you have to upgrade to W10 Pro in one of these two ways...

 

Upgrade using your digital license for Windows 10 Pro

To upgrade, select the Start  button, then select Settings  > Update & Security  > Activation .

Open Activation settings

  • If you have a digital license for Windows 10 Pro, and Windows 10 Home is currently activated on your device, you'll see one of two messages when you select Go to Microsoft Store:

    • If you see Install, select the button to install Windows 10 Pro.

    • If you see Buy, you may need to purchase a Windows 10 Pro license. Or, try to sign in to Microsoft Store with the Microsoft account that was used to purchase the Pro license. Then, follow the instructions to install Windows 10.

  • If you have a digital license for Windows 10 Pro, but Windows 10 Home isn't activated on your device, select Troubleshoot and then follow the instructions to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro.

Upgrade using a Windows 10 Pro product key
 
  1. Select the Start  button, then select Settings  > Update & Security  > Activation .

  2. Select Change product key, and then enter the 25-character Windows 10 Pro product key.

  3. Select Next to start the upgrade to Windows 10 Pro.
