Had home version, friend updated to ultimate and its not genuine.

Hi,

I bought the home version from Best Buy. A friend updated to ultimate and now says not genuine. How do I reinstall my home version?

Thanks for any help.

Boot from the disk you bought from Best Buy and follow the prompts. Activate with the product key you got with the disk.
