Preferred Solution: is it possible to upgrade Windows 7 Home Premium(Trial) to Windows 7 Ultimate?

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.)

A: is it possible to upgrade Windows 7 Home Premium(Trial) to Windows 7 Ultimate?

It's not possible, neither can it be made possible as the upgrade wouldn't install from a trial version, and even if it did, it would cause persistent problems.

You have to install the non-trial version as a "clean" installation on to an empty partition.
Back up all your important data first to another drive or to DVDs.
Applications will have to be re-installed once the non-trial version is up and running.

Modify 2 registry keys. After that do a "repair install"

This might be a silly question, but I need some advice. I have Vista Home Premium 32 bit, and since the release of windows 7, the price of Vista Ultimate has dropped dramatically. My questions are these. What would be the benefit of upgrading to vista ultimate on a home PC or should I just upgrade to Windows 7?

A:Upgrade Vista Home Premium to Ultimate or Windows 7

I would go with 7.

Vista was never very popular. It would be my guess that support for the OS is ended as soon as possible, without any extensions.

7 has better security

Although mostly eye candy, 7 does have a lot of nice features.

Of course a question like this is very subjective, there is no right or wrong.

Is office 2010 in windows 7 home premium 64b trial only? Or is there any product key that I didn't see? Thanks!

A:Is office 2010 in windows 7 home premium 64b trial only?

It depends..

Did you purchase a new machine from somewhere?

Alot of times, Dell and other major manufacturers will include a trial version of Office 2010 on the machine when they give it to you.

Did you request or purchase a license of office 2010 with your machine?

A:Upgrade to Ultimate from Home Premium - Anytime Upgrade or reinstall?

The best way for any install is ALWAYS a clean install. Believe me you will have less problems and headaches than an upgrade. It would be worth your while to reinstall your software.

As the title suggests, I want to upgrade to my machine to Windows 64 bit doing a clean install. I was wondering though, since I have two physical drives installed, (one for the os and the other for media) will it just erase the contents of the drive I install it on or will it erase the contents of both drives? Thanks for any help on this.

A:having problems upgrading from vista to windows 7 home premium or windows 7 ultimate

Are you selecting the Custom Install option or the Upgrade option? Also, is your current OS (Vista) 32bit or 64bit? What service pack do you have? You will need to know this. To check, simply right click on Computer, and click properties and you can find out there.

The Laptop model number is Gateway MT6916, I partition the drive using windows vista, then proceed to install windows 7. Windows 7 finished installing then rebooted, the odd thing about was that there was no bootloader (for dual booting). The laptop booted into the gateway recovery instead. I check the Bcdedit just using the command prompt from the gateway recovery and everything seem to listed fine with the exception that windows 7 identifier is <default>. I tried repairing the startup for vista and windows 7 but it still keeps booting to the gateway recovery? Windows Vista Home Premium is under C: and Windows 7 is under D:

A:Windows Vista™ Ultimate cannot be upgraded to Windows 7 Home Premium.

What is the exact problem causing you to want to do this?

You might be able to Run HP Factory Recovery by tapping the F11 key at bootup. This will return the computer to factory condition. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...name=c01895783

You need to backup your files first, or if you cannot boot your computer we can help you copy your files out using the Repair Disk you can download to burn from here: System Repair Disc - Create

If Recovery doesn't work or you prefer to clean reinstall, then you can unlock all versions in the Home Premium DVD to install your licensed version of Win7, using the Product Key on the COA sticker on machine. Use ImgBurn to extract the ISO image file from DVD then follow the steps here: Windows 7 Universal Installation Disc - Create

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

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.

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

I am about to install Windows 7 but I am stuck because I don't know which version to install!

Home Premium:

This doesn't have the Bitlocker and Bitlocker to go which I need.

Ultimate:

This has the bloat (business tools etc...) that I don't want! But I would love the Bitlocker and Bitlocker to go.

How much bigger is the install size of the Ultimate compared to Home Premium?

Is Ultimate worth installing considering I only need two tools from it?

Thanks,

I bought a new HP dv7-1175 yesterday and need to upgrade it to Ultimate from my July 2008 disk from my MSDN subscription (Vista with SP1 x64 and x86). When I put in my (valid) activation code is just says "An error has occurred" and to restart the installation. When I bypass the activation and choose the Ultimate x64 it disables the upgrade option. I do not want to do a fresh install because I know what a driver hassle people are having with that option and I am more of an XP experienced installer.

I have paid through the nose for the MSDN subscription, why doesn't it just let me use it?

A:Home Premium to Ultimate Upgrade Horrors

Hello Jerry, and welcome to Vista Forums.

When ever you go from a 32 bit Vista to a 64 bit Vista version, or in reverse, it can only be done from a clean install. It just is not compatible or possible to upgrade from 32 bit to 64 bit by the usual upgrade method. If you have a upgrade Vista installation DVD, then the tutorial below will show you how to do a clean install with it.

Clean Install From Upgrade Vista


If you do not wish to do a clean reinstall of everything, you should be able to upgrade to the 32 bit Ultimate from your current 32 bit version of Vista though.

Hope this helps,

A:unable to upgrade from home premium to ultimate

The Product Key that you have there is not an "Anytime Upgrade" Product Key. You have to perform the Upgrade installation by putting the DVD in the drive and clicking "Upgrade". This is completely separate and unrelated to the Anytime Upgrade.

The Anytime Upgrade is completely different because that type of Product Key is only obtained by opening the Windows Anytime Upgrade program that's included with specific editions of Windows 7 (such as Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate, and I think maybe even Home Basic as well), and then going ahead and purchasing an Anytime Upgrade product key. This is nice because then you don't need an installation DVD.

To see what I'm talking about, open the Start Menu, type anytime and press Enter. This is how you obtain a Product Key that works with the Windows Anytime Upgrade process. So what you have to do since you have an actual retail copy is you have to insert the DVD, and then click "Upgrade" when you see the prompt come up. Again, it's completely separate and unrelated to the Anytime Upgrade. In other words, you have to do it "the old-fashioned way".

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.

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.

Note that you can only upgrade to the 32bit version using the inplace upgrade option. IMO I would do a clean install, especially if you are going to be using the 64bit version... Good Luck... ;

For a recently purchased PC, am considering purchasing a "Windows Anytime Upgrade" from Home Premium 64 to Utltrimate 64
Search of these forums indicate that there have been problems with this upgrade. But, could not find many such posts after late Summer of 2008.

Has anyone done such an upgrade withing the past 2-3 months, and if so, were any problems encountered?

SP1 came pre-installed, and some of the early 2008 "problems encountered" posts mentioned that SP1 was not on the Upgrade CD. Can anyone confirm that SP1 is now on the Upgrade CD?

Thank you.

A:Anytime Upgrade - Home Premium 64 to Ultimate 64

I have the same question exactly. I am thinking of an upgrade from Premium to Ultimate but my research indicated lots of confusion and problems. I have Vista 64bit Home Premium with SP1 pre-installed.

Besides wondering about whether the Upgrade comes with SP1 preinstalled I am wondering what this will do to my existing premium system (i.e. will it be "upgraded" leaving my minimal configuration intact or will it effectively be like a clean install ? )

About a year ago I bought Vista Ultimate upgrade to Upgrade SP1 Vista to Trying Premium Home Ultimate unfortunately my Sony VAIO laptop was only compatible with Vista Business so I couldn't use Trying to Upgrade Vista Home Premium SP1 to Ultimate it About a month ago I bought a HP desktop loaded with Vista Home Premium -bit with SP I learned from Windows Anytime Upgrade that I could upgrade Vista to Ultimate but when I tried it wouldn't let me upgrade it only gave me the option to perform a clean install I really don't want to do this because all of my HP software is on factory image on my hard drive and if I perform a clean install Vista will erase the partition and I'll lose it I've already burned a backup copy to DVDs but I still don't want to go through all the hassle of performing a clean install and then updating everything -- if I don't have to The problem is that my Vista Ultimate upgrade is the original version of Vista whereas the Home Premium is SP which is why it gives me the error message that it can't upgrade because my current version of Vista is newer than the version I'm trying to install I tried calling Microsoft support but they're closed at this time of night and I tried sending a message to Microsoft but it's giving me an error and to try again later Does anyone know if there's a way around this problem Ideally I'd like to be able to use my product key from Vista Ultimate upgrade to obtain or download Vista Ultimate SP which should resolve the problem

A:Trying to Upgrade Vista Home Premium SP1 to Ultimate

Try uninstalling SP1 from your current system.

1. Click Start, type Appwiz.cpl in the Start Search box, and then click Appwiz.cpl in the Programs list.

If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.

2. Click View installed updates.
3. Click Service Pack for Microsoft Windows (KB936330), and then click Uninstall.
4. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to complete the uninstall process.

If you are unable to uninstall it that way for whatever reason, roll back with a system restore.

Once you have Ultimate loaded, load SP1 once again.

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

So how can I do it withoute loosing that?? I mean install Ultimate 64 and keep the recovery partition?
 

A:How to upgrade Vista Home Premium to Ultimate

First of all, is the hardware 64 bit ready?

If you install a different OS, you will NOT be able to use the Recover method, but the partition and data is still there just no way of getting the Recover program to work. Why would you want this to be protected?

Also, make sure that ALL of the built in devices and external devices have 64 bit drivers available for them.

I'm trying to upgrade from Home Premium to Vista Ultimate. When I run the setup the Upgrade option is not available and a message says "Cannot upgrade from staged to non-staged version".

I've tried this with and without SP1 installed (the Ultimate DVD has SP1 and refuses even to get as far as the above unless SP1 is on Home Premium). I'm running 32 bit and upgrading to 32 bit.

I've seen lots of similar complaints on various TechNet and other forums. Anyone here have any experience / ideas? I am on the verge of doing a complete new install, but can't face the amount of work that will involve.
 

A:Cannot upgrade Vista Home Premium to Ultimate

You need to do a clean install, you can NOT upgrade from on Home to Ultimate.
That said, on most OEM built machines there is a link to BUY, a upgrade from Microsoft. This is a file that will install the higher version.

Go to "Start, All Programs, Extras and Upgrades, Windows Anytime Upgrade".

Windows.old contains your personal data from a previous install, eg, Home Premium. If all of your data is there in Ultimate, delete the old folder. Open Computer, right click the C drive/properties/ disk clean up. Tick (check) all options, OK, OK.

In case anyone is running into issues trying to upgrade Windows 7 Home Premium to Ultimate, I did the following things and got it to work. I ran into the "Can't upgrade. Need clean install" issue, and the "you have a later version" issue.

1. Changed the two registry keys in

Hkey Local Machine\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\

Changed

Edition ID to "Enterprise"
Product Name to "Windows 7 Enterprise"
2. Browsed the Windows 7 Ultimate CD directory, found the Setup.exe file, right mouse clicked it, selected "properties", and told 7 that I wanted to run this file in Vista Version 2.

Then ran setup from Windows 7 Home Premium.

Worked great.

You obviously need an upgrade license for this to work, but I had just purchased one.

The Home Premium won't offer others as well like the XP Mode on Virtual PC and network as an option for storing any system images created of your main drive. Most advanced users would at least go with the Pro edition while you can also look over the comparisons between editions before deciding to replace the preinstall while under warranty. Compare Windows 7 Editions

This problem was solved. I will detail the steps in case they may help anyone else who has a problem with installing Office after upgrading their OS.

Solution:

Uninstall OfficeClean the registry...I used cc Cleaner and cleaned up 30 items from the registry.RebootCustom Reinstalled Office 2007 and selected "Run All From My Computer" (not sure if this was a necessary step but again, it worked for me)Rebooted and viola everything including Outlook worked.One final step to configure Outlook; I had to import the PST file that was in the AppData Folder (must unhide hidden folders to see AppData) located in
C: Windows.old>>Users>>User Name>>AppData>>Local>>>Microsoft>>>Outlook. Note Outlook is a pst file. For whatever reason, Search did not turn up this file and I was a bit worried, however, trust that your old .pst file is in this directory. In my case, I didn't care about the mail file but wanted to import my contacts and calendar. There is a way to target only the items in your outlook.pst file using File>>import/export and then select import from program/file; click next and select the Personal Folder (.pst) near the bottom...when you get to the final screen if you don't want everything to come over (you probably do) then you can select just calendar or just contacts but only one per import. In my case I did one import for contacts, and one for calendar.

If you have this problem or a similar one, I hope this helps or helped you.

The Microsoft "anytime upgrade" for Windows 7 has been discontinued. You will, apparently, have to buy a new version. However, there may still be "OEM" versions available and they are less than the full versions. The only difference is the OEM can only be used on the PC it is first installed, just like the original "OEM" version that came with your Dell.

What are doing or going to do that will require that much memory? I have 16GB installed on my recording studio PC and have never used over 7GB of RAM.

Have you installed the drivers for the HL-3070CW?

I have one, and it has a full driver suite for Win7 X64, available for download from Brother. The interface that I use is an Ethernet connection from the printer to a router. My main desktop is hardwired to the router, but I also have a laptop and secondary desktop that connect using WiFi. All three can print directly to the 3070.

Hello Guys

First of all, Please move this to right section if this doesn't belongs here Thanks.

I would like to ask about my HP G62-340US with Pre-Installed with Windows 7 Home Premium and
I also have a Windows 7 Professional Legit Key installed on other machine.
Now, my other machine with Win7Pro is, I didn't use it anymore, and formatted the drive few months back.

Is it Okay If I upgrade my HP G62-340US with Win7 Home Premium to Windows 7 PRO using the same key that I used before on my OLD machine that was not available anymore?

any help would be appreciated. thank you.

A:Upgrade Windows 7 Home Premium with Windows 7 Professional from OLD PC

Hi netbox,

The answer to your question is "it depends" (helpful I know)

Basically, if your old machine came with Windows 7 Professional pre-installed then it is probably an OEM copy. This means that the license is locked to that machine and that machine only and can't be transferred.

However, if it is a retail copy. That is, you went out and bought the disk, and it didn't come pre-installed then it should be fine. Although Windows may ask you to call Microsoft for activation, just so you can tell them that it isn't in use any more. Here's a tutorial: Upgrade Install with Windows 7

I am looking for the best available option to upgrade the OS of my HP Pavillion dv7 Notebook from (factory installed) Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Service Pack 1 to Windows 7 Professional.  Unfortunately it's no longer available from Microsoft on my "Windows Anytime Upgrade" program installed on my system; including the "upgrade key" option.It is frustrating to see how Microsoft  "support" for windows 7 is now limited on a good product that  lots of us like and still has big demand. The sometimes  (confusing) upgrade option is available from many on line stores.Please advise  

A:Upgrade Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Proffessional

Interesting that your Windows 7 Home Premium does not allow the upgrade.  I am using Windows 7 Pro on several PC's and it still allows the "upgrade".  Perhaps you are looking in the wrong place.  Go to Control Panel>System and Security>System.  Does the "Get more features with a new edition of Windows 7" (in blue) show up?  Click on that and then the choice "Enter an upgrade key".  Of course you need the key for Windows 7 Pro at that point.That is how I have done a few for friends in the past but not recently.

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.

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.

Hello people as I've been researching online that there 7 from Vista Windows Home Premium to Pro Upgrade is ONLY one way of going to from version to version when upgrade from Windows Vista to Windows For example Vista Home Premium to Home Premium You technically In Microsoft's eyes can't go from Upgrade from Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Pro Windows Vista Home Premium to Windows Professional People bought the Student Professional from DR when it was available and had Vista Home Premium on their laptop Mistake I don't think so We are also assuming that you have a legitimate copy of Windows Vista Home Premium and Windows Professional Upgrade We also assume no liability for any damages or data loss this may occur from doing my Upgrade from Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Pro tutorial First off we need things done before we can do the upgrades Yes Upgrades Backup everything you need saved Make an image with Acronis or any backup program Have a copy of Windows Any edition works I'll tell you why later Have a quite some time to do this Upgrades took a total of probably half a day Assuming you did the first steps continue So you have a DVD copy or image of Windows Extract the image or copy the disc to a folder on the HD of the computer you are upgrading We are going to be going from Vista Home Premium to Windows Home Premium as this is the only way we can do it THANKS MICROSOFT View the extracted dvd image on your HD You will see a Sources folder and you will see a ei cfg This can be edited with Wordpad or notepad either one will do fine You will see this Code EditionID Professional Channel OEM VL Remove Professional and put HomePremium instead of Professional underneath EditionID Make it look like this Code EditionID HomePremium Channel OEM VL Save it and continue Run the setup exe inside the directory where you extracted copied the Windows Installation It will do the upgrade warn you about any incompatibilities When it finishes the installation DO NOT ENTER A KEY Your Professional key will not work here Once done we are going to go back to the DVD image extraction location Where you copied extracted the Windows DVD Remember the ei cfg we edited using notepad wordpad Well we need to change the EditionID back to professional We can't do an anytime upgrade by using the Professional key because Microsoft made special keys for that purpose and the ones you received were not the correct ones Once you do that save it then run setup exe You are going to go through the same steps as before but at the end of the upgrade it'll ask you for a key put your Professional key in this time Wallah Run Updates and Install remove any programs that got blown away by the upgrade It happens sometimes when parts of a program don't work properly on Windows I was able to do this on laptops for work To sum it up we basically did upgrades Vista to HP then from HP to Pro Why it works Probably because when you don't put a key in Windows has a default key it inputs automatically

A:Upgrade from Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Pro

It works also because an Upgrade only needs to see an OS when first scanning the HD to allow upgrade key.

If you don't put the key in upfront and it continues the install, it is allowing you 30 days to input the key at Computer>Properties.

I figured someone would put this together when I saw this popular workaround which worked for me on RTM > 7 Home Premium: UNAWAVE - Downgrade Ultimate to Home Premium or Professional

A:Windows 7 home Premium Upgrade question.

Hello HPX,

Yes, you can upgrade both of them to either Windows 7 Home Premium or Windows 7 Ultimate. You will need two copies to have two product key numbers, or you can get a Windows 7 "Family Pack" that includes 3 product key numbers. Plus, you would only be able to do a upgrade from 32-bit to 32-bit and 64-bit to 64-bit, not 32-bit to 64-bit or 64-bit to 32-bit.

A:Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit UPGRADE issue

If your new motherboard supports the old drive, you should be able to put it in. You will most likely need to boot up fully into Vista and let it find the new drivers for the motherboard first, or download and install them yourself. It's been awhile since I've swapped HDDs from mobo to mobo, but I am pretty sure you will need your chipset driver for your new motherboard..maybe get all of your peripheral drivers ready just in case..

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'm running an Anytime Upgrade from Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Pro on a Dell XPS16. The installation has corrupted files that I have been unable to fix through the SFC utility or other means. I'm thinking my most desirable option would be to use the Home Premium installation CD that came with the laptop to do an "Upgrade" (repair) installation. However, my understanding is that because I upgraded from Home Premium to Pro, my only option, at this point, is to do a Custom installation, which will wipe out my applications and settings. Is that the case? Any advice would be much appreciated.

I currently have windows 7 home premium 64 bit edition on my desktop. I get a copy of windows 7 professional 64 bit disc with legal key from my university for a student special. How can I upgrade? I was redirected to windows anytime upgrade during the installation. But my windows 7 professional x64 product key was not accepted there. I already have lots applications installed so I don't want to do a clean install. Any suggestion? Thanks!

Your original installation may have an "OEM" license and your pro license may be retail.

Greetings, I have a retail copy of Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 Upgrade that I am trying to find a way to slipstream all the updates after SP1 into. I've found information about using RT 7 Lite to slipstream and WUD to get all the current updates however I don't know which options to select in WUD and RT 7 Lite gives me the error "Please Select A Valid Windows 7 Operating System" when I try and select the original image copied to my computer by the software. Any help or guidance on this would be most appreciated. Thanks so much!

.1x Corsair 600W CX Series V2 PSU - 6x SATA 2x PCI-E
.2x Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600Mhz CL9 1.5V Non-ECC Unbuffered
.1x Corsair Carbide 400R Case
.1x AMD FX-6 6100 Black Edition 6 Core 3.3Ghz Socket AM3+ 8MB L3 Cache Retail Boxed Processor
.1x ASUS Crosshair V Formula 990FX Socket AM3+ 8 Channel audio ATX Motherboard

Will this be considered a new pc, and when I do get this upgrade will I then be able to upgrade my graphics card from a 6870 to a 6970 at a later date, When or if I need a new windows 7.

also if I do need a new copy can I keep my one I have on my hard drive but buy a new CD key off of Microsoft?


I think that would be considered as a new PC, due to the new motherboard. I don't think the video card is a problem.

You will likely have to buy a new key from Microsoft.

I'm ttrying to get the Windows 10 Upgrade, but after going through some help screen, It's telling me that my product is not eligible for an upgrade.

I'm just wondering why that is. I have Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium SP1 that I purchased with a new HP Pavilion desktop computer. I have a product key. why isn't this eligible for W 10? Any ideas?

thanks,
Carl

A:Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium SP1 Product Not Eligible for Upgrade?

Hello and welcome Carl I don't know exactly why but it does recommend you remove any security suites from the machine before you go ahead.

My own personal experience is that one of my desktops upgraded from an OEM Home version I put on but my Toshiba laptop upgraded but would not go past build 10074 and kept asking me to activate it so it could be purely down to glitches or bugs in the system.

By the by how did you get the 10 as I downloaded the ISO and then loaded it from booting from the DVD? As I said I had an OEM clean install to get rid of all the Toshiba crapware - maybe the HP stuff could be causing the problem/s.

I am currently running Windows XP Home Edition and I think I am ready to make the jump to Vista Specifically I want to upgrade to Vista Home Premium bit version You see currently I have GB of ram installed into my computer but because of page filing CPU cache and the MB of memory on my Video Card coupled with the limitation of -bit operating systems I cannot use Questions Home bit Premium to (32 Windows 64 bit) Upgrade Vista an entire GB of ram Upgrading to a bit Operating System is the only way to solver this issue It s funny because I am expecting a performance INCREASE from upgrading to Vista I also have a Dual-core bit AMD Opteron processor that I would like to take full advantage of if not only for the sake of saying that I am Finally I NEED DirextX Need So here is my question Windows Vista Home Premium Upgrade Questions (32 bit to 64 bit) I can get a Vista Home Premium Upgrade disk and license through my college for cheap The only problem is that I am unsure if you can upgrade from XP Home bit to Windows Vista bit I called up Microsoft to ask them this question specifically and after much waiting I was told that it was possible I was told that I would first need to install Windows Vista Home Premium onto my computer with the -bit disks and that I would then be shipped the bit disks that would allow me to upgrade from a to bit operating environment The thing is I felt like I knew more about Windows Vista than the saleswomen at first she didn t even know you could get Home Premium in bit My questions for you fine folk is Can I upgrade from Windows XP Home bit version edition to Windows Vista Home Premium bit edition with the Windows Vista Home Premium Upgrade package If I can are the instructions from the saleswomen correct I would think that I would just have to wait for the bit disks and use those as opposed to upgrading to vista and THEN If I can t and need a clean install can I do a clean installation with the Windows Vista Home Premium Upgrade Packaged Thanks nbsp

I have somebody who was asking me for help upgrading their Vista system to Windows 7. They bought the OEM copy of Windows 7 and instead need a copy of Windows 7 64-bit home premium upgrade. They intend to return it as luckily the packaging hadn't been opened.

The question is, where can I purchase a legitimate copy of Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium, either Upgrade or Retail, whatever will allow the easy upgrade option instead of overwriting everything?

A link to a reputable site or mail-order business that ships to the Chicago Suburbs would be appreciated.

Oh, the computer in question does NOT have a touch screen, and Windows 8 is probably unsuitable for that system. It might work OK if she bought a touch screen, but does not want one. She's just interested in Windows 7 Home Premium.

All I can find on Amazon and Tiger Direct are OEM copies.

Personally I'd go for a clean install as opposed to upgrading from Vista.
