Home Premium To Ultimate Upgrade

My questions is about upgrading windows 7 home premium to windows 7 ultimate. At his moment im using windows 7 home premium, but im thinking of upgrading to windows 7 ultimate. But im not sure wich version of ultimate i need to do this. I was thinking of buying the full version of ultimate because when i need to reinstall windows later, only this disk will be sufficient.

Later i noticed that there is an upgrade version of windows 7 ultimate, but its available at the same price as the full version.

So basically, i want to know if i can upgrade windows 7 home premium to windows 7 ultimate using the full version of windows ultimate, or do i need the upgarde version?

How To Upgrade From Home Premium To Ultimate?

Is there someone out there who can help me with this problem as i am going round the twist. Okay here goes, are you sitting comfortably then i shall begin. I bought a new computer and it had o/s win7 home premium set up on it and the disk etc. Was with it, i wanted to upgrade to ultimate but was put off by the price, i heard of this site that was software4students and when i got on it was able to buy the upgrade at a much reduced price, anyway i have tried to upgrade but have failed because it asks me for a key to activate it but i have only the product key, it tells me that i have to do a clean upgrade not a custom one, i bought it because i could do a custom upgrade as i am not in the slightest pc wise or a tecky at computer work, i can do the usual stuff but the ultimate upgrade is sat on my shelf and after trying to contact software4students and getting nowhere then microsoft, who wanted £45 to a question, i don't think so, i am left with a feeling that i have been conned as i have very little money and it took an age for me to afford the upgrade as i cannot work due to being disabled, a clean upgrade means i have to clear my pc and do the upgrade but it will come to nothing as i will be asked for the upgrade key and i do not have it so any help will be so very welcome. One thing please keep it very basic and simple as i am not very pc wise and able to do programming stuff, hope someone can help as i would like to get this up and running.

Anytime Upgrade From Home Premium To Ultimate

I have windows 7 home premium in spanish installed in my computer. I do not speak spanish, so i would like to change the language to english. For this purpose, i would like to upgrade my os to windows 7 ultimate. I have 2 questions:1. Are windows 7 "anytime upgrade" packages language specific (i.e. In order to upgrade my windows 7 home premium spanish, do i need to purchase spanish version of anytime upgrade package)? If yes, where can i find it in us?2. Anytime upgrade packages are not released in my country yet. I will travel to us next week, so i plan to purchase a package there. Can i install the package when i return back to my country? Or, will it check my ip and tell that i am not in us so cannot upgrade.

Backup Suggestions When Upgrading From Win 7 Rc To Ultimate

My boss has windows 7 rc installed on his laptop and have a lot of games, applications and data. With the cut off date for moving to the rtm version of win7 looming ever closer, i will be 'upgrading' it next week. However, he wants all of his files, games and applications to be preserved in the same state as they are now. I'm aware that you can create backups and system images with win7, but i'm assuming the system image will be no good due to the differing windows versions? Will this be a case of putting the rtm version on and then installing everything else manually, followed by recovering any data and configurations from a windows backup?

Upgrading From Vista Home Premium

Multiple questions about upgrading. I currently have vista home premium installed on both my laptop and my desktop. Vista home premium is 32-bit. Can i upgrade to windows 7 ultimate 64-bit or do i have to continue with 32-bit? Windows 7 ultimate upgrade is licensed for one install, one computer. What happens if i want to buy a new computer a few months from now which has windows 7 home premium installed and i want to upgrade it to ultimate? Do i have to buy the software once again or can i upgrade with the software already purchased and installed on an old system, actually transferring the license to the new system?I now have vista on my laptop and desktop computers.

If i upgrade the desktop to 7 ultimate, will i also be able to upgrade the laptop seeing as how the two are used for business and travel access - same purposeslso, if i have to leave vista home premium on my laptop, installing ultimate only on my desktop, will i be able to take advantage of the remote desktop access in 7 ultimate using my laptop which will have the vista os?

If i want to, or need to, upgrade both my laptop and my desktop to 7 ultimate using the same piece of software, will i need to purchase a second license/key for the second computer? If so, how is that accomplished and how much will it cost? I'm hoping it isn't necessary to purchase the software twice in order to have it accessible on both my laptop and my desktop . . . What are my options?

Problem Upgrading From Home Premium To Professional

I had a problem upgrading from win7 home premium to win7 professional. The search for "anytime upgrade" yielded no results. In other words, it could not find anytime upgrade on my machine and that step was necessary to start the upgrade process. A clerk at office depot offered a suggestion that i did not get in two days on this forum and it worked. Click on the control panel and click on the "view by" button. Select large icons and one of the selections should be "windows anytime upgrade".

I selected the icon and entered my product key. Ten minutes later my machine is upgraded to win7 pro. S information, my win7 home premium was an upgrade from vista. This worked for me and i am passing the information on so that it might help others.

Win 7 Ultimate Upgrade From Vista Ultimate

Purchased windows 7 ultimate upgrade package since i have windows vista ultimate on my laptop. Purchased it online and after it was ordered, and before it was delivered, my @$*_$&_ hard drive failed. I cannot find the vista software that was preinstalled on the laptop now. Will the upgrade package work the same as a full installation? I really don't want to reinstall vista at all and then have to upgrade. Not to mention i don't want to tear my house apart looking for the vista disk if i don't need it.

Upgrade Vista Premium To Win7 Home Premium

Bought a hp dv7 just before win 7 came out with promise of an upgrade to win7 when it was launched. When the upgrade disk eventually arrived in feb time we had a guy from hp come and do the upgrade. Unfortunately he had not done one before and was a hardware guy so i do not have a clue what he did but some 7 hours later it appears to be working. Unfortunately it seems to be unstable. We have strange things like when opening windows mail and using on closing we have to click on the x twice to close it, the first it appears to close but the second one then closes it.

Also i have just tried to install the latest quickbooks and the pos part locks up, installs okay on the hp i bought with win 7 on already. As part of qb it installs google desktop which causes the entry area in the taskbar to flash and a message keeps coming up that google desktop has had to close down and you need to run it again from the start menu. Tried running a system check package of the microsoft website but it failed with a runtime error. I suspect it is the vista to win 7 upgrade that is the cause or interaction with the hp stuff that gets installed.

Randomly Lose Mapped Drives

We have windows server 2003 r2 with shared drives. We have windows xp pro and windows vista ultimate workstations and have no problems with any of these machines.

Drives are mapped using a kixstart logon script

We have just installed 11 new dell optiplex 760 workstations with windows 7 professional pre-installed.

Randomly on several of these machines, users are reporting that they lose connection to shared drives. A red x is showing on all shared drives and double clicking on these does not work. The pc's are not idle at time of disconnect.

Trying browse to drives using servernameshare does not work.

When the drives disconnect users can still access internet and exchange server for email which is also on the file server.

Logging off and logging on again is also unsuccessful.

The only way to get access to the shared drives is to  restart the pc.

Taskbar Flashes - Application Appears To Lose Focus

When running some programs (i.e.microsoft access 2007 and tinker to name two), the programs appear to lose focus to the task bar in windows 7. The symptoms are as follows: 1) program window flashes (for microsoft access it happens only with the file open form) and the icon for the program on the task bar inexplicably scrolls to the right and back with each flash.

When this is occurring, it is nearly impossible to select an access file to open with the open. Dialog or play to play the game tinker. Setting hkey_current_usercontrol_paneldesktopforegroundlocktimeout to equal 30d40 seemed to resolve a similar issue with minesweeper, but not the other programs mentioned above. One more item to note: the issue appears to be user account specific. Any ideas?

Ultimate Licenses

I am looking to upgrade to win 7 ultimate 64 bit, but here is my problem. After buying win 95, 98, me, xp (several copies) and vista(several copies) bill gates can just kiss my  big fat a**. I am not going to cough up $199 bucks a pop to upgrade 3 desktops and 1 laptop. He made enough off me on vista that he is lucky he does not get sued for coming out with another os this soon.

So here is the crust of the biscuit. There are several people selling licenses for win 7 ultimate on ebay for less than $50 buck a pop.

Installation media is around the same price. So what gives with this? Is it possible to install win 7 and get it activated for less than a $100 bucks. I am using the rc of win 7 and kinda like it but $800 bucks not a chance.

Anyone tried to go the cheap route and have any success?

Then i proceed to buy a copy from amazon and when i try to change the product key i get a screen saying that the key is blocked. I tried phone activation without luck also.

Ultimate Reinstallation

I recently replacement the hd in my computer and obviously had to reinstall my os. I tried activating it during install and it wouldn't accept the product key. I skipped the step so i could complete installation. I tried to active and received the following error: the following failure occurred while trying to use the product key: code: 0xc004f061  description: the software licensing service determined that this specific product key can only be used for upgrading, not for clean installations. What the heck do i do now?

Reinstall Vista Ultimate

Because win 7 is computer specific, i can't run it on my laptop and desktop both (i only could afford and bought one copy). I installed it on both because the initial upgrade on my desktop didn't work (monitor problems). It is now working on the desktop, but i'll have to go back to win vista ult on my laptop (because of license req. When i register the desktop copy). How can i reinstall win vista ult on my desktop without losing everything (doing a custom install; can't do an upgrade)?

Upgrade To Ultimate From Professional

I had a copy of vista 32-bit, which was upgraded to windows 7 ultimate 64-bit (through vista x64 install disk that came with brother's pc), until i had a hard drive failure and am back to square one. I have now installed 64-bit windows 7 professional, again through a family member's install disk that came with his pc. This version, obviously, does not activate, however i was hoping to use anytime upgrade, and my product key to upgrade this to windows 7 ultimate.

Any suggestions?

Ultimate 64-bit Bsod

I have a self-built system. Evga mb with intel i7 (lastest bios updates installed). 12gb ram (mem tested ok), dual ati radeon (diamond) 4670 1gb video (crossfire currently disabled, latest drivers installed).

This is a recent install, upgraded from vista ultimate 64-bit. Sometimes it stays up for a while, other times only seconds after a restart. But i've been getting pretty constant bsod's for the last few weeks. I've been researching it trying to determine if all my drivers are up to date, and it appears that they are. I ran a memory test and that came out ok. This is becoming more and more frustrating.

Best Way To Upgrade To Win 7 Ultimate

Before vista 7 came out, i purchased windows vista ultimate from my local electronics superstore and it cost me a whopping 300 euros. I found that vista is absolutely rubbish and is ridden with bugs that have never been fixed in any upgrades.

The place i purchased vista from mentioned that i have 5 licenses with this software. I use this windows vista ultimate on 5 computers and it has worked fine for the last year. I know want to upgrade to windows 7 ultimate but i am being told it only works on 1 pc. Is this true?

I already feel like ive been ripped off and i shouldn't have to pay for windows 7 because vista is so bad and ive had it such a short time. I know intend to start a business where i could need windows 7 to work on maybe 20 pcs. What is the best way for me to purchase this at a good price. I´m dammed if i´m going to pay 300 euro for windows again.

Win 7 Ultimate Upgrade Fails

I just purchased a windows 7 ultimate oem upgrade disc. When i attempted the install on my hp laptop (vista ultimate home premium), the upgrade was proceeding well until the very last restart when i got the message the upgrade was not successful and the original version was going to be reinstalled (vista). Then the upgrade got stuck in a loop between this windows 7 error screen and restart. I even tried shutting down my laptop, but when it came back up it returned to the error screen/restart loop?
