Windows 7: How do I upgrade to Windows 7 ultimate with out the admin password

Windows 7 Ultimate
 
 

By the way, whoever said a system running 7 Starter couldnt run Ultimate, your wrong. My windows netbook originally came with starter, and I upgraded it successfully to ultimate soon after I bought it. Also, I bought the upgrade before Windows 8 came out so please stop calling it bogus. I knew that, as soon as Windows 8 came out, Microsoft would stop selling Windows 7 Upgrades. I misstyped the topic, because I last posted on a forum about this right after 8 came out, and what I meant to say was "A while ago I bought the Windows 7 Ultimate Upgrade." Sorry about the typo.

An upgrade install takes 30 minutes or so, He "wasn't looking" for awhile.

See post #15.
I never said Ult wouldn't work on an original Starter system. I wondered if it would given starter was put on very low-end, lower powered machines with little RAM. Ult can work on many systems but may be feature-limited and slow.
