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.

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?

Activating Ultimate

Here is my problem: i bought windows 7 ultimate through ebay. I was sent a download location and the key to register it. That was about 4 months ago. Now i start getting this annoying messages about it being a counterfeit copy. So i read a little and it seems that it was actually a scam. 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. Here is the wga tool says:

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?

Upgrade From Home Basic To Ultimate

I will be ordering a custom hp dv8t soon, and it will come with windows 7 home premium. I can purchase 7 ultimate for about 100 bucks after academic discount, so it would be cheaper than spending 200 bucks getting ultimate pre-installed. I was wondering if it comes with 7 home premium, can i purchase 7 ultimate and do an in place upgrade, or is a fresh install mandatory for this?I was thinking, maybe after i purchase 7 ultimate, go into windows anytime upgrade, would i be able to enter the key off of 7 ultimate i purchased from academic superstore and upgrade in place?

Boot Up Problem Win 7 Ultimate

I have a recurring problem when i power up my pc. The screen displays an i/o error stating that there may be a hardware problem. To get around this i boot-up off the installation disk and select repair.

If i select fix startup it works sometimes or there is†failure message. Something happens at this stage because if i restart the pc it boots up from the hard drive without a problem. However, the boot problem returns when the pc is powered down. If i select restore system image, it works but it only lasts until the pc is powered down. I have tried bootrec. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not.

I suspect that there may be a software problem and i have attempted to overlay the system software using the upgrade option on the install disk. The last attempt failed. Any solutions or suggestions other than having to reload from scratch and pay a fortune to download the service packs and patches.

But since i started using the internet the laptop is taking about 15 to 25 minutes to start, which was not the case when i had bought it. I use an ev-do usb data card for my net connection and always disconnect before shutting down. To solve the problem i have unchecked nearly half of the startup programs like nero and like.

Upgrade Japanese Edition To Ultimate

I live in japan, i bought a new pc earlier this year with a pre-installed 'japanese 32 bit copy of windows 7 home premium' and i want to run 'windows 7 ultimate' - my japanese isn't good enough to understand all the windows 7 options.

I've been trying to use the upgrade anytime function - which apparently is available in japan - but for some reason it doesn't let me even look at purchasing an upgrade.

Where can i buy an upgrade? Can i buy an upgrade from another country? Do i have to buy a japanese upgrade? Will my japanese software run in a windows 7 ultimate where english is chosen as the main language?

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.

Win 7 Pro To Ultimate Or Enterprise

I began the process of setting up direct access on our company network. The server end went well. Unfortunately i made one mistake. I didnt notice that direct access will not work with 7 pro and upgraded a computer with vista business to the volume licensed windows 7 pro that i purchased. The upgrade went smoothly without any problems which was important because this computer has a lot of programs that have missing original disks. I fixed the problem by purchasing the enterprise edition and the ultimate edition and the computers that use those editions work very well with direct access. The upgrade refuses to work on the one pro edition computer insisting that i use anytime upgrade. Anytime upgrade does not exist on the computer and there seems to be no way to install it.

Lost Win 7 Ultimate X64 Disc

I've managed to lose my windows 7 ultimate 64-bit disc. Also, being a fool, i don't remember if it was a full install or upgrade, (i'm running the rc over vista home premium x86. ) I was planning to get this taken care of sooner or later, but the rc expires in ~13 days, so it just got urgent. First order of business: is there any way to tell what version you have by looking at the product key? I have that copied down. Second: is there an iso i can get so i don't have to go get a disc?†

Vista To Win7 Ultimate Upgrade Fail

I'm attempting to do an on-line upgrade from vista ultimate to windows 7 ultimate. The procedure took forever, and finally got to 83% of the final stage. The system went through another re-start and failed. It stated it is dumping physical memory to disk; attempts to restart; fails again and offers to restart in safe mode. I've tried to restart in normal and safe mode without success. It continues to loop through this and will not reset to either vista or win 7. Advice?

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?
