Windows 7: Upgrade w/Full Version Doesn't Work

Upgrade w/Full Version Doesn't Work

I tried upgrading a Home Premium Installation with a Professional Technet Disk and found that it deferred to an Any Time Upgrade that had to be purchased separately (with an Anytime Upgrade Key). Has anyone found a way to upgrade with a Full Version Disk?

If I'm reading your post correctly then you can't upgrade from Home Premium to Professional..

You can perform a clean install.

Were both copies of Windows 7 from technet and were they from your subscription?

I cant answer your question then... I would do a clean install anyway .. you've only had Home Premium installed for 11 days, so it shouldnt take that long... Good Luck..
