    Probably a random post, but looking for some help.

    Does anyone know if it's possible to remove a windows education edition, and revert back to OEM installed windows?

    In my case I need to rollback from windows 10 education -> windows 10 home OEM. Problem is I don't really want to reinstall windows as I lose the standard OS included apps and features etc affecting software warranty and resale ability. I don't have a restore point nor backup.

    I used showkey, and it's showing me the new education key and the old windows OEM ket but it won't accept it when I delete the education key via CMD.

    Has anyone found a solution to this?

    Thanks for any ideas.
