Hubby has a brand new computer with Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit. But he needed a version of Windows 7 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 Windows 7 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 Windows 7 and leave the other one there, which is stupid.
