Remove or edit Windows OEM key in BIOS

Remove or edit Windows OEM key in BIOS
« on: February 14, 2016, 07:40:42 pm »
I recently purchased my first Gigabyte laptop. It came with Windows 10 Home edition. I prefer Windows Pro for the added features. I already have a Windows 8 Pro Key that includes a free upgrade to Windows 10 Pro. I cannot upgrade to Windows 10 Pro because the BIOS has the 10 Home key and by default Windows 10 upgrade checks the BIOS first to provide the correct edition. Is there a way to remove or change the BIOS key so that I can get my Pro edition installed?
