    so I thought I'd do that free upgrade to 10 a while back to check it out.
    didn't like it all that much so went back to 8.1 but I wanted the option to do 10 again someday.
    so I fired up the media creation tool to download the ISO for win 10 pro. when I got to the screen to choose my version it did not list win 10 pro, even though I am running win 8.1 pro.
    has this happened to anyone else? is there a way to fix it?

    Perhaps no one who has viewed your post thus far has had your situation, so as to offer an intelligent and, indeed, useful suggestion . . . .

    My only totally-inexperienced thought, no better than yours, is that perhaps Media Creation Tool simply is referring to the Windows version generally and that your download either will be for the Pro or will include it. Perhaps, assuming you have bandwidth and storage available, you simply could do the download and see what results.

    I just used the Media Creation Tool myself and saw the same thing. Don't worry though - just pick the "Windows 10" option and when you boot up the installer via DVD or USB, you will have the option to select Windows 10 Pro at that time. Just make sure you select the right Architecture, 64-bit in your case.
