    Got the answer after a long hunting session on the MDL Forums:

    @Mr. Fox @Papusan @bloodhawk

    So I have to format now and install Home then upgrade it to Pro for Workstation to get the real deal! Perfect! Just after I spent 2 days formatting and setting up my taptop! :eek::rolleyes:

    @Phoenix Isn't W10 Workstation OS very expensive?

    At least you can switch to ReFS in this case...

    Not for the boot drive bro.

    I just Acquired the Windows 10 Pro for Workstations ISO so I formatted again and did a clean install. No upgrade this time, Pro for Workstation out of the box.

    Just for testing, I installed Windowws 10 Enterprise Evaluation. After installing all my drivers and going online, it says I am activated:

    Perhaps the Activation via Digital Entitlement I did on Windows 10 Pro for Workstation is the same for Enterprise? Not sure

    Anyway, I then tried to enter this key to change the edition from Windows 10 Enterprise to Windows 10 Pro for Workstation but it's not accepting the key anymore (DXG7C-N36C4-C4HTG-X4T3X-2YV77)

    So now I have to format again!

    This is not fun!

    I guess the best way to do this is install Windows 10 Home then upgrade to Pro for Workstation using the above default installation key then it would activate automatically using a digital license entitlement.

    This is a world breaking record.....5 formats in a day! :rolleyes:

    Scarface did make a slim Win 10 enterprise version that worked perfectly. If you're interested https://ufile.io/drq7a

    I'm good now. I installed Enterprise, wasted a whole day configuring Windows and installing drivers. Then when I tried to switch editions, the generic Windows 10 Pro for Workstations key didn't work as the Enterprise Edition I installed was on the Evaluation channel. So I ended up formatting for the 6th time, installed Windows 10 Home, then switched editions using the Windows 10 Pro for Workstations generic key and the moment I went online my machine was activated.

    Me during these 2 days =
