I don't know how much the cost is if you go through windows anytime upgrade. If you are student, you can get the ultimate for $59.99. You can use the key for anytime upgrade. It will work.

I just anytime upgraded from Home Premium to Professional using $29.99 product key from Digital River. It took less than 10 minutes and no DVD or download required.

Windows 7 Professional
 
 

My lad bought a Dell Inspiron with Windows 7 home premium pre loaded and he bought the Windows 7 Professional as a pre release,long story,was going to buy a computer at a local store with no operating system as standard.....

Anyway i searched for ways of upgrading with no luck so i clicked on the anytime upgrade on the computer and it asked for a product key which i entered (from the windows 7 professional box) and it accepted it,all i needed to do was follow the on screen messages took less than 10 minutes and i didn't have to insert the DVD that came in the box,it was that easy once i had the nerve to do it......

Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit
 
 

Hubby has a brand new computer with Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit. But he needed a version of Win7 that would still let him run XP mode which this doesn't allow.

He bought a copy of Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit because the university book store doesn't carry the Win7 Professional.

Anyway, I am trying to install the Ultimate version of Windows for him, and it won't take the key. It keeps telling me to cancel out and go to the 'anytime upgrade'. I don't want to do that. I already have a purchased copy of Ultimate, I don't have any need for the anytime thing.

How can I get his computer to let me install the Ultimate so it overwrites the current version of Home Premium? It's a computer from HP, so it has things on it he doesn't need and will uninstall, but there's also things on it he would like to keep.

Why won't the computer take the key, and just let it install? If I try to do a customized install, then it says it's going to just install a 2nd copy of Win7 and leave the other one there, which is stupid.

Help please

Hi, sapat, welcome to the Seven Forums!

Why don't you want to perform the Anytime Upgrade? It is the easiest way and you'll lose none of your existing data or programs. You've already got Windows installed, just do the upgrade with the key you just purchased.
