New help in choosing which OS to buy.

Hi, I am having a bit of a conflict at the moment. The thing is, I have 4 Pc´s which I wanna upgrade. I am an yurop resident which I believe complicates things. And I need some advice in choosing the correct OSés.

1. HP Laptop which has Vista 32-bit home premium. I wanna upgrade to Windows 7 64-bit home premium if possible. OEM

2. Dell Laptop with XP-Pro and wanna upgrade to Windows 7 32-bit Home Premium (I have tested it with RC and it worked fine). OEM

3. Desktop with standard XP-Pro which I wanna upgrade to Windows 7 64-bit ultimate. Retail

4. HP Laptop with XP-Pro and wanna upgrade to Windows 7 32-bit Ultimate. OEM

I wanna make a clean install on all of them if possible. That is installing all of em on clean HDD´s.

I just wanna be sure that I am not buying the wrong version or anything.

No, all of that is perfectly fine.

You qualify for the upgrade license, so you don't need to pay for a full retail copy.

You can do a clean install with an upgrade version; see here: Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version

Now the only way to upgrade from 32 to 64 bit is by doing a clean install, so we can eliminate that concern.

#2: I have tested all of them by installing windows 7 and they work fine

#3: Ok, so for

1 & 2: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, Upgrade Edition for XP or Vista users (PC DVD): Amazon.co.uk: Software

3 & 4: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate, Upgrade Edition for XP or Vista users (PC DVD): Amazon.co.uk: Software

If so, all I have to do now is order those items and have them sent to me, that is if they send to denmark.
