Upgrade vs WOW for Win 7 Home Prem to Prof
I didn't explain my situation very well yesterday so let me try again.
I have a new laptop that came with Windows 7 Home Premium. I bought Windows 7 Professional Upgrade from download along with the backup disc. Unfortunately, the Windows 7 Professional Upgrade I purchased is not the Anytime Upgrade and it can't be returned since it was obtained through the student program. Do I have a "qualifying previous version of Windows" to just do the upgrade or do I need to reformat this hard drive and install my upgrade version from boot (clean or custom install)?? If a clean install is necessary, how is hard drive reformat accomplished? Please point me to the appropriate installation instructions for this scenario. Need and appreciate help Thanks a bunch.
