Upgrade from starter to home premium failed.

Q: Upgrade from starter to home premium failed.

I upgraded this lunchtime from Windows 7 Starter to home premium via the Windows Upgrade Advisor which said my netbook was compatible, I carried out the upgrade via the windows upgrade advisor. It worked fine for a while but I was having trouble trying to set up my LAN and wireless connection to work together in order to get onto xbox live via BT Openzone. After a while the advice from the microsoft website was to carry out a system restore, so I did and used the recommended date, however on trying to restore the ugrade failed and reverted back to windows 7 starter. Tried again and had the same issue. Please help.

Preferred Solution: Upgrade from starter to home premium failed.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm quite sure this is not illegal since the upgrade is automatic and happens without a choice.

I had starter on my netbook and tried upgrading it by using the app on the OS itself but failed.

One day I was searching for TV tuners and came across Media Portal. During the course of the installation it tells you it is better to have windows aero enabled for "tear" effects. I dismissed the dialog and installed it.

I check the OS later and voila it's upgraded, apps such as windows media center and all games like chess titans etc came out of nowhere. Also all the themes etc. I checked SYSTEM and found the OS name changed to home premium from starter.
Try it !

I have a Samsung Netbook which came with Windows 7 Starter and I am finding that I miss the extras of Home Premium Retail which installed on my Desktop PC. I have the Home Premium installation disk which I used, but as far as I am aware it is a single use licence.

The Anytime Upgrade is available on the Samsung, but at a cost of ?70 from M$.
Is anyone aware of a more cost effective (legitimate) method?

Having Googled for it, I come up with this:
Microsoft Windows 7 Anytime Upgrade, Starter to Home Premium (Licence only): Amazon.co.uk: Software.
Anyone know of anywhere better?

A:Upgrade Windows 7 Starter to Home Premium

Yes, buy the home premium family family pack- you'll spend more initially but you'll get 3 retail licenses @ about $50 each.

If you do decide to do that, save an image of your starter install first.

So I recently bought a product key for Windows Anytime Upgrade, so I can get rid of Win7 Starter on my netbook and get Windows 7 Home Premium. I start the Anytime Upgrade software and it works great, but fails as the upgrade gets around 90%, at which the upgrade process "fails" and restores the OS to Windows 7 Starter. I've looked at a few guides that gave solutions, but I've had no luck. Anyone have any ideas on how I can get this working?

The only thing I can find in the upgrade log that looks suspicious is:

Error: WAU | Failed to create WAU event due to error 0x5

Anyone have any ideas on how I can get this to work? Thanks.

A:Windows Anytime Upgrade Failure; Starter to Home Premium (32 bit)

Try rebooting to run it again to see if it corrects itself.

Next try a clean boot: In msconfig>Startup uncheck everything (add AV back later), then do the same in msconfig>Services after Hiding all MS services. Reboot several times to make sure nothing sneaks back in, or turn it off in its Program Preferences or Uninstall it. One more reboot, try AU.

Hello,
I bought a netbook a while back with Windows 7 Starter.

I had an extra upgrade key of 7 Home Premium from one of those 3 pack family upgrades so I upgraded the netbook and put the key in.

I want to reformat the netbook back to Windows 7 Starter and just use it's original Starter key it came with. Home Premium bogged it down too much.

My question is...

Is there a way I can reuse the upgrade key of 7 Home Premium on another computer or did I waste the license by putting it on the netbook?

Thank you in advance for your help,
Mogoamerica

Hi,

I have a Lenovo S10-3t, which came with Windows 7 Home Basic installed. I bought an anytime upgrade to Home Premium. I started the upgrade, but it said that I must first activate System Restore. The system restore configuration menu had two Drives C:\ with one labelled "missing". I disabled restore on it and this drive disappeared; the other one then had restore switched on automatically, so I proceeded with the installation. After about 10 minutes, I got the message that the upgrade was not successful. After clicking close, I restarted the system. It said that it was upgrading. Once it rebooted, it upgraded further, and then rebooted again. Finally, it booted into Home Premium's welcome screen.

The system properties shows that it is indeed Home Premium. Aero and Tablet Input are working fine.

Has it happened with someone else? Do I need to worry about the system being broken in any way?

A:Basic to Home Premium Upgrade: First failed, then succeeded.

Thanks for posting, because interestingly, a similar thing happened to me.

I bought a Windows Anytime Product key to upgrade from Windows 7 Professional to Ultimate and ran the upgrade.

The upgrade failed - so it said - so like yourself I restarted my computer to try again. As it started the shutdown procedure the upgrade kicked in and updated my system.

On completion I checked in system properties and sure enough it indicated I was now using Windows 7 Ultimate. To prove it I encrypted my drives with Bitlocker, which succeeded.

So, to answer your query: you do now have Windows 7 Home Premium and your system is not broken. It appears to be a glitch that Microsoft need to sort out, so I think I'll do some investigating and see what I can come up with.

In case you weren't aware, the anytime upgrade just downloads the files needed to convert your system to the new version.

I have got myself into a bit of a mess.

I installed my version of windows starter on my mom's PC which was previously running vista. To see if it improved the performance or if the laptop itself was rubbish. It did so I purchased an upgrade to windows home premium. When I enter the upgrade key it says I need the current key is invalid for upgrade and that I need to phone a number. Does this mean the software I brought is useless. I didn't want to buy a disc as I had read that using a upgrade key meant everything was kept. Is there anyway I can use the software I've brought. The computer recognises the key as an upgrade one.
Thanks.

You can not use the Windows Starter from your Notebook on your mother PC.
Doing so would be a invalid upgrade.

I'm sure this has been answered by various personages six ways from Sunday, but here goes anyway. I have a li'l netbook w/the usual specs: 1.6 GHz, 2 GB RAM, 250 GB HDD. Currently running Starter, where previously I was running XP. What with all the "XP will kill your Mom if you keep using it" scare, I was able to go to this. NOW--that was the last XP machine we had. Everything else is on some flavor of Win7, all running nicely, thanks. My question is this: Will I see any improvement--of any kind EXCEPT visual (Aero, etc)--if I shell out for the HP WAU? Or, given its netbookiness, am I just as well served to leave it as-is?

Thanks!

MY wife wants to buy a netbook (no DVD drive). It comes with Starter but she wants HP. If she buys the upgrade is it done by a download (with checks on the existing s/w)?

She already has a laptop that came with Vista and I upgraded it with 7HP. If I revert back to Vista can I then use the serial key on the new netbook to upgrade that to 7HP?

The upgrade kit I have is for an Acer Aspire but the new netbook will be a Samsung N310, I suppose that means I can't do what I want?

I have a netbook that I am thinking of returning for an exchange. The problem is that I have used Anytine Upgrade to install Win 7 Home Premium instead of the out-of-the-box Starter version. If I get a replacement netbook with Starter on it, will I be able to use the same activation number on the new one or will it ring up "Tilt"?
If I need to revert to Starter to return this netbook, then how do I do that? There are too many subsequent restore points to be able to go that route. The one that would take me back to starter status has disappeared.

A:Return Win 7 Home Premium to Starter?

Does your netbook have a factory recovery partition on it? If so run it to restore to Starter.

Otherwise you'll have to order Recovery Disks from the manufacturer

or find a Win7 installation DVD for Starter version to clean reinstall with the Product Key on COA sticker. Reinstalling Windows 7

This will free up the Anytime Upgrade key to use in the future.

I was wondering --

I bought Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade when it was 1/2 price in July. I can also purchase Windows 7 Professional through the Ultimate Steal here in Canada.

I currently have Windows Vista Home Premium on my computer. I really don't want to do a clean install.

After I do an in-place upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium, can I use the key from Windows 7 Professional to upgrade to that version?

After that, can I then install Windows 7 Home Premium on a friend's computer, using the same key I had originally used on my computer, now that I'm not using Windows 7 Home Premium any more?

Thanks.

A:Upgrade Vista Home Premium --> 7 Home Premium --> 7 Pro

It appears the Upgrade keys are much more flexible than in the past, so it is worth a try at install. The worst is that you would have to use the key that came with the version.

No one I've read knows for sure whether an upgrade deactivates the underlying O.S. key, and MS's own Technet MVP's say it doesn't in case of reinstall need. It violates the EULA, of course, which says the upgraded OS replaces it except for reinstall.

Since upgrade keys are working in clean installs, you might want to try this providing your Vista Premium is retail so that you can migrate it to your friend:

1) Make an image of your Vista Premium install so it can be easily restored.

2) Try a clean formatted install booting from desired Win7 Upgrade version, which should take the key, or require the double "upgrade over upgrade" trick so the key is taken.

3) If this works, you can migrate your retail copy of Vista to your friend's computer, if not just use your backup image to restore it for in place Upgrade.

You will need to make a backup image of the finished job to avoid having to reinstall both OS in the future.

Be sure to note the numbers & what the failed updates are & then check on any later updates received to see that they have not been installed again successfully at a later time.

You can lock the task bar by right clicking on it & you will see a menu & one item it says "Lock the Task Bar" select that & it should keep the task bar visible at all times.

Hey guys I want to upgrade my OS from Vista Home Premium to Upgrade Premium Home to Windows 7 Home Windows Premium Vista Home Premium and I have the Anytime upgrade DVD provided at the time when I bought my laptop which came pre-installed with Windows Vista Home Premium Since this is the first time I will ever try to upgrade my OS and I will be paying for it lol I wanted Windows Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade to clear a few doubts before I went about it My current OS is a Deutsch German version I want my new OS to be in English So my question is - Will the upgrade process provide me with the option to choose an installation language I researched a bit about language packs and if I'm not very wrong Multiple language packs work only for Business and Ultimate versions but not for Basic and Home premium Third party language packs like Vistalizator has been reported to work fine but Microsoft doesn't recommend it and some users have reported to have problems where it pops the message quot your windows is not genuine quot So should I do an upgrade or just do a clean install with an Windows Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade original Windows Home Premium DVD

A:Windows Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade

Welcome
I am not sure about the answer regarding the language pack, but I am sure about the upgrade or the clean install. Do the clean install. A clean install is always preferred over an upgrade. With an upgrade all the old problems that may exist with the OS are just carried to the new installation.
Upgrades often fail, either because of third party software that is not compatible, or malicious software that breaks in the new install.
There are some members that back up their stuff and do a clean install on a regular basis to have the OS run smoothly as the first day. Trust me go with the clean install and enjoy your new OS

Seriously what the hell? I bought and clean installed my Windows 7 just two days ago. Since then windows update as downloading updates and yesterday evening I switched off the computer and it installed them all during shutdown. Today it was configuring updates for more then 5 minutes (no percentage changing) and then I just briefly saw "reverting changes" and my event log / administrative events is now flooded with Windows update client messages like "
Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0x800705b4: Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB976662)."
just now when I write this there is a popup "restart your computer to finish installing important updates" but there are no new messages in eventlog so I wonder what was installed (if anything) I will now restart and see...

I backed up my files ON the computer and ran the built in system recovery. On reboot, it shows a DOS screen listing media drivers then goes to boot windows and shows ANOTHER dos screen rapidly scrolling lines. I can read "failure" but cannot tell for what. It says the system needs to reboot, but then goes thru the same loop. I can F8 and have run every possible item there (repair start up files, etc), but cannot get windows to start, even in safe mode.

I suggest leaving the idea of "deleting things in the registry"...far outside the scope of intended actions until you have verified that the hardware is not at fault.

I have Win 7 Home premium installed and activated.(it came on the computer) The non profit that I do work for allows us to buy the Win 7 Pro upgrade DVD for almost nothing so I did. When I try to upgrade from within Windows, it tells me that I need to use Windows anytime upgrade. When I attempt to use it, and type in the provided 25 digit license, it takes it, starts the upgrade, and then tells me that the license number is valid, but not for anytime upgrade.

When I try and boot directly from the DVD with the system BIOS set for DVD as 1st boot item, it skips right past the DVD and boots from the hard drive.

Is there anyway to do this upgrade from the DVD, or is it only good if I do a complete re install?

Thanks!

I'm starting Law School in a month and we are required to have either Vista Business or Vista Ultimate.

Currenlty I have a: Dell Studio 1537 wit 4GB of RAM and a 64-bit Operating System. It is a Windows Vista Home Premium.

I do not understand much about computers so trying to purchase the upgrade is becoming very overwhelming for me. From what I understand, even if I purchase the upgrade directly through Microsft (even though its like $70 cheaper on Amazon) I will not receive the version I need. I instead will have to go to a website that will not work to try and order the 64bit version.

PLEASE HELP direct me to what I need. Also please remember that this is all very confusing to me!

A:Help-Need to Upgrade from Home Premium

Hello Udsl12,
I would think the easy way would be to buy OS you want, either Business or Ultimate, save all your files you want to keep to disc, then do a clean install of the Vista you decide on. That way you get it cheaper and have the benifit of a clean install.
Hope this helps, if you need anymore help just ask.
Post your results and let us know how it goes. Good luck at Law School.

Hi Everyone.

I wish to upgrade my pc from Windows 7 Home Premium 64 to Windows 8 Professional 64.

I have purchased and received the Windows 8 Professional (Upgrade Edition) 32/64 DVDs.

I have a few questions tho.

Do I need to disable Norton Internet Security (NIS) 2013, before I proceed with the upgrade (Keeping all apps, settings, and files) ?

Would I need to reinstall NIS 2013 after upgrade is completed ?

How long (on average) am I looking for the upgrade to fully complete from start to finish ?

And finally, does everything transfer successfully (as I'll be using the 'Keep all apps, settings, and files' option) ?

Many thanks.

A:Upgrade to Win 8 Pro 64 from Win 7 Home Premium 64

It's my understanding that Windows 8, like Windows 7, has all version content on every install DVD (or download iso for that matter) and you can use Windows Anytime Upgrade to go from Home to Pro to ... and I'm sure I remember reading you could use the key from a purchased Win 8 Pro DVD to do this. You would lose nothing doing it that way as all it really does is unlock the upgrade features.

Unfortunately I can't find the steps you need to do this with any of the Google searches I've made. Hopefully someone remembers what I'm talking about.

I have a windows 7 home premium computer and am not sure the best way to upgrade to windows 7 professional now that Windows Anytime Upgrade (via control panel) no longer allows you to do this. I have also heard that the retail upgrade versions of win 7 pro upgrades through (relies on) Windows Anytime Upgrade not through the disk itself. Does this mean I need to buy the full retail version of Win 7 pro to do the upgrade? Note that I do not want to do a clean install. I want to do an "in-place" upgrade so I don't have to backup all files, reformat my drive, reinstall all software, etc? Will the full retail version of win 7 professional allow me to do an in-place upgrade from win 7 home premium to win 7 pro? Thanks!

Hi nerdi and welcome to PCHF,

Perhaps this post from Microsoft Answers will help.






If the license for Windows 7 Professional you have access to is either a retail upgrade or full version, you can use the product key and Anytime Upgrade to move from Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional. Click Start, type Anytime Upgrade, follow the onscreen wizard, enter the Windows 7 Professional key when requested, click and restart your computer when prompted. Within 10 mins, you should be upgraded to Windows 7 Professional and your files and settings preserved.
Please note, if the product key is distributed under Volume Licensing, MSDN-Academic Alliance or OEM System Builder, it will not work.

Is there any tweaks that I need to make, as every time I try to launch the Upgrade process via the downloaded Win7Pro disk, it tells me to use Anytime Upgrade. However, Anytime Upgrade says that it can't upgrade to that version of windows after I enter the key given to me by the MSDNAA (it validates fine).

A:Upgrade Home Premium to Professional? (7)

Unfortunately, MS wants you to use Anytime to Upgrade between Win7 versions. You are left to clean install if you have another retail version.

However, there is a workaround which is achieved by adapting this popular fix for changing between the Ultimate RC and any other version: Upgrade the Windows 7 RC to any retail version Icrontic Tech

The same principle applies: you carefully change the reg keys to trick installer into thinking you are upgrading over the same version, which is a Repair Install in Win7 and therefore allowed.

It has worked every time tried so far, for many different combinations Starter>Premium, Ultimate>Pro, Premium>Ultimate, etc. All users report good performance.

What version of Win7 did you install?

If it's the RC then you can do a clean install with the upgrade version. It has to be activated first.

This will be confirmed soon when people will probably try every variation and post what can be done.

A:Upgrade to Windows 7 home premium or any other

Windows 8 would be a much better choice if you really want a good upgrade. Upgrading to Home Basic or Home Premium would result in needing more memory because you're already using 1.96 GB out of the 2 GB that you have installed. Windows 8 has a much smaller footprint, so it is the way to go - but only if you wouldn't mind the big change to things like the new user interface.

I checked the search, but no results. I am building a PC from scratch. I bought Vista Home Pemium, but did not know it was 32 bit. I want to utilize 64 bit, so I bought the 64 bit DVD from MS. Do I install 32 bit first, and then the 64 bit DVD? DO I just install the 64 bit DVD as a clean install? IS that even possible?

Specs:
Gigabyte GA EP45 USD3
Intel Core 2 Quad 9550

CPU is a 64 bit processor. The hard drive is brand new.

Just install the x64 like normal. Nothing special is needed. You are all set to go.

Just make sure you have at least 3 gigs of RAM to run x64 properly.

I recently bought a new laptop which came installed with win 7 home premium. On my desktop machine that it is replacing I have win 7 ultimate installed.

I want to transfer the ultimate license to the laptop but when I tried to perform an install from the W7 ultimate CD on the laptop I was directed to the windows store to purchase a W7 ultimate upgrade.

How can I use my W7 ultimate disk to upgrade to W7 ultimate on my laptop?

jhob,
you'd need an ultimate upgrade package to do that. With a full ultimate license, all you can do is a complete reinstall on the laptop.

I recently bought a laptop with windows 7 home premium x64. Can this be upgraded directly to Windows Ultimate x64?
 

A:Upgrade from windows 7 home premium

If you've never used Windows 7 before, you might want to become familiar with Home Premium first before spending an extra $140.00 or so to upgrade to Ultimate.

You might also want to consider if you really need all the additional features in it.

You should be able to upgrade directly from Home Premium to Ultimate.

About six months back I bought a laptop from Toshiba that came Premium RC upgrade the Win7 Home over with Vista on it The tech guy who was helping me get all set up said that as long as Win7 Home Premium upgrade over the RC I was making the learning curve from XP I really should go right to Win Win7 Home Premium upgrade over the RC Rick said he had a beta version and we could make the full switch to the full release when the free upgrade came out Sounded fine to me Well he disappeared to Colorado somewhere not long afterward never finishing a number of parts of the job and being completely unfindable But at least I had a nice PC to use for some things until this week when a warning came up saying the Windows Ultimate build had days left til it would expire Rick added a bunch of customizing to the laptop and I've done a bunch more in all this time it would be just HORRIBLE to lose it all if I had to reinstall everything on my laptop because of a new operating system installation What's more since the computer came with Vista on it already I'm not sure how I'd go about reinstalling Vista even if I had to Which I sure don't want to do So Is there a way to make the leap from Windows Ultimate build to any version of Win to resolve this problem without starting from scratch Ideally with a free upgrade or if absolutely necessary by buying something to do so Seems it should be free since I paid for the laptop with Vista on it If Rick's choice to put me on Windows Ultimate build was a big mistake how can I move forward from here when I didn't receive a Vista disk from Toshiba I do have one that Rick left behind that says Vista Enterprise on it but I'm not sure he pulled it off my system Please keep in mind in your response that I'm okay around a computer but NOT a tech guru Thanks

A:Win7 Home Premium upgrade over the RC

You do not have any disk(s) that came with you laptop??

Check to see at least if you have the recovery partition from Toshiba.. To do that you should have two drives.. C and D in the Hard drive area.Where D is usually named Recovery..

If you don't have a recovery partition, You will have to re-install Windows Vista..Do you have a key for the Vista Enterprise?? if you don't have the key for Vista it will only be active of 30 days..OR You can Buy Windows 7, But I am not sure if you can upgrade from RC to RTM (I think you can but it is not supported by Microsoft) I believe starting March 1st all Windows 7 RC versions will start shutting down every 2 hours Then eventually expire on June 1st 2010..

Hope this Helps...

The Abit Vista support for this MB seems to be very patchy at best are you sure that you will be able to find all the Vista drivers that you will need after the install?

This is normally an indication of hardware problems. As XP ran on this MB, it could be an indication that you will not be able to install Vista.

How far into the install are you getting?

If you are overclocking turn everything back to normal.

How much Ram do you have installed?

Check to see that you have the latest BIOS

This error indicates to me that Vista did not install enough for you to be able to restart the (now old) install, The answer here is to reboot from the DVD drive ie. a complete new install

I would suggest trying again just in case the blue screen was a one off let us know how you get on. If it blue screens again there might be someone here who can still help you

It said it couldn't upgrade from my Vista Home Premium and had to do a custom install clean on top of Vista. I have not gone any farther than to see the installation finished and I see that it saved my Vista files in Windows.old.

I sure thought Win & would upgrade from Vista. Now I have to reinstall all my apps again. And if I'm going to do that anyway I might just as well install the 64 bit version instead of the 32 bit I installed.

Is this best?

I have MS Office 2007 as well to reinstall. Does it work under 64 bit Win 7?

Is this what others have seen?

A:Win 7 upgrade from Vista home Premium - not?

You can upgrade from Vista to 7, but it has to be an approved path.

Upgrade Install with Windows 7

Trust me - it's better to do a clean install than an in-place upgrade. Any problems you had with Vista will be present in 7. If you want to use x64, be my guest - but you have to verify that all of your hardware is supported under x64.

If you have Home Premium installed and get the Professional version, and the Professional key, you should be able to load in the Professional version and activate it with that key.

A:Upgrade from Vista Home Premium to Win 7

I tried the Upgrade route from Vista64 to W7 64 bit and it didn't work out very well. My start menu was blank and a bunch of other stuff was hosed. So the reason for doing it, not having to reinstall stuff, didn't work out.

One thing I found is if you have a lot of portable applications or apps that just use an .ini file in the install folder instead of the registry, and you don't put them under Program Files, most of them will still be there if you do a "custom install" of W7.

It takes longer than a clean wipe and install, but then you have to set up all your programs again. I have a lot of small self-contained apps under the Utils folder.. so it worked out fairly well for me.

What happens is it gathers up all the system files and programs and moves them to a folder called Windows.old. Then it installs W7 and the default games and crap. To use my programs under Utils all I had to do was make a shortcut.

Any way you try it, I recommend getting an image backup program and making an image of your current system. As in the case where the W7 upgrade didn't work, in less than 2 hours I copied my Vista image back on from an external USB drive.

The program install business is like the biggest hassle that should be addressed. But I doubt anyone will tackle it anytime soon.

A:Can a Win 8 Pro upgrade key upgrade Win 7 home premium?

You can download Windows 8.1 ISO file from here. The new Windows 8.1 ISO will now accept Windows 8 keys.

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...ad/windows8ISO

After the upgrade, you do not need to upgrade to 8.1 or install any updates. Make sure all the drivers are installed though.
Download the Windows 10 ISO. Right click on the ISO and choose Mount. Then open File Explorer and look for the new drive. Double click on the new drive to open it. You will see all the installation files for Windows 10. Double click on Setup.exe to start the upgrade. It will upgrade just fine from Windows 8. You only need to have Win8.1 installed if you upgrade through Windows update. There are less problems upgrading the way I just explained than going through Windows Update.

Also, if I restart the PC manually, I get a Dos screen up asking me to choose between 'Setup' and 'Vista'. The PC will only boot up if I choose the 'Vista' option. Can anyone offer any advice on how to resolve this annoying problem?

Are you using an OEM Windows 7 DVD? Or, MS blue-disk DVD? OEMs are often installed & "married" to a specific computer.

Have run the Windows Upgrade Advisor would like to download the 32bit Windows 7 Home Premium or Ultimate. Is it possible to download?

A:Upgrade 32bit Home Premium Win. Vista

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

You can't just download Windows. You'll need to buy it from a store or either Microsoft's website.

If the Upgrade Advisor said it will run then you should be ok. What is the make and model number of the computer?

I am going to be upgrading to Win 7 Professional 64bit Upgrade soon (been saying this for over a year). I am upgrading from Vista Home Premium 64bit. I plan on doing an in place upgrade so I don't have to manually reinstall many programs (which I run in specific configurations ect.).

I have recently been reading that it is not possible to do an in place upgrade of Win 7 Pro over Vista Home Premium. Is this true?

And can someone link me to an updated Digital River .iso with Win 7 Professional 64bit with SP1? Apparently the Digital River site has changed now. Hopefully my almost two year CD key of Win 7 still works.

Unfortunately, you can't do an in-place upgrade from Windows Vista Home Premium to anything other than Windows 7 Home Premium. For more information, see the two links below.

A:Problems with 64-bit W7 after anytime upgrade from Home Premium to Pro

Toc,

You only have uprade win7 home premium as your base OS? Or did you mean you have the upgrade for pro and the regular DVD for Home premium?

If that is the case, you can try a clean install with an upgrade version: Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version

Hi Everyone - New here. I've searched and haven't seen this addressed specifically, so any help will be appreciated.

I currently am running win 7 home premium upgrade. I purchased this upgrade and have the media. I also recently purchased win 7 professional upgrade. Both versions are 64 bit. I'd like to 'change' from my retail copy of home premium to my retail copy/key of professional. Any suggestions on how I can do this without a clean install?

Can I simply 'enter new key'? Can I enter an "anytime upgrade" key? Can I do an upgrade in place using the Win 7 Pro media?

Thanks,
Jeff

Hey again

A few months back I purchased Win 7 Home Premium 32bit from MS, I was given a student discount and I took it !

Anyway at that time I was given the opportunity to either purchase 32bit or 64bit version of the OS. Now I'm sort of kicking myself because I wish I would have purchased the 64bit edition rather than the 32bit.

My laptop fully supports 64bit.

Anyway is there anyway where I can get an upgrade for free or for a low cost ?

You might check with your school and see if they would exchange it for you...

Hello,

A very quick question:

I recently bought a Compaq with Vista Home Premium SP1 installed in French (I live and work in Paris but am English), and want to change the language to English.

I understand that it is possible to change the language in Vista Ultimate using MUIs from Microsoft.

So, if I buy the Anytime upgrade from Microsoft, I should be able to change the language to whatever I like?

One last question:

Would I buy the French Version of the anytime upgrade (i.e. the same language as is installed) and then change using the English MUI?
OR
Could I buy the English upgrade and install this?

Thanks for your help

Marv

Apologies...moved to more approapriate group.

A:unable to upgrade from home premium to ultimate

I am not seeing the new thread, so I have to use this one.

Are you trying to upgrade from 32-bit to 64-bit? Because that's not a possible upgrade path due to the kernel being completely different. A clean install is required for that.

With the deadline looming I was hoping I could purchase the Windows 7 Home Premium upgrade and install it over the Windows 7 RC. Has anyone had success doing this?

A:Can I install Win7 Home Premium upgrade over the RC

Under the EULA you need to have a previous qualifying Vista or XP to use Win7 Upgrade version, although it doesn't have to be installed.

You can clean install the Upgrade over RC by booting the DVD. It will see an OS during bootup to allow Upgrade version key. If not, use one of the workarounds here: http://community.winsupersite.com/bl...he-answer.aspx

I'm a firm believer in clean installs of operating systems, but I wonder if that belief should be extended to upgrades in versions of operating systems???

I have upgraded all of our pc's to new ones with Vista. All have Home Premium except one. I'm thinking of upgrading the others to Ultimate (mainly for the backup program) so they will all be the same and I don't run into some glitch that puzzles me due to differences.

any advice or thoughts on this appreciated.

thanks,

tom

Currently running as title and was wondering is there any benefit to upgrade to ultimate to utilize bitlocker.
Or is there any cheaper options of encryption than bitlocker? I know there is options, would like to hear other opinions

Cheers

A:Home premium 64bit upgrade to ultimate?

Hello kingscurate,

TrueCrypt is a good free option to encrypt your drives and/or files with.

If you like, you could compare the features between Home Premium and Ultimate to see if there are other features that you may want to make it worth upgrading or not.Compare Windows 7 Editions
Hope this helps,
Shawn
