Upgrading Windows 8 home to Pro

by

So I had this issue on one client, ran the relevant fixes and didn’t think any else of it… until today, when I had another client needing to upgrade Windows 8 home to Pro. Lo and behold I had the SAME issue! WTF Microsoft? A one off I can forgive but every time I upgrade from home to pro? Come on!

Anyway here’s the fix;

Run MSCONFIG
Open Services
Click “Hide all Microsoft Services”
Disable all other services
Reboot
Try the update again – it would work.
