Ultimate Upgrade Question

Have Windows 7 Home Premium x64 which came with my SONY laptop. I have a new full copy of Win7 Ultimate and want to upgrade. Any issue with installing over my current home Premium install or do I need to go with a clean one?

Thanks in advance!

Take a look at this:
Windows Anytime Upgrade - Windows 7 - Microsoft Windows

No install files needed.
Only the Upgrade key is neeed.
Anytime upgrade only adds-on the Programs & Features from version to version.

I'm not sure how that impacts me..? I already have the full version of Ultimate. Can I enter that serial number to unlock features? Confused a bit I guess.

Yes, many reports that retail serial works in Anytime.

Just type Anytime in Start Search box to start process.
