Windows 7: Enterprise Upgrade version offered through work. Installation Question


23 Dec 2012   #11

64 bit win 7 Home Premium
 
 

I think it is worth it for $20 and I should do it soon because they won't offer it forever. I might regret it if I don't once I start learning the difference. lol!

And that anytime upgrade is sweet! Seems almost too easy. So I buy the upgrade just for the key? It says that all of my stuff will be preserved, but I back up my system and files regularly. I'll do that before I do the upgrade just in case.

Thanks!

Question: Is the anytime upgrade key different from a product license key?

Yes, it offers a price break for upgrading to a higher version within Windows 7. But you get no disk so if you need to reinstall you must reinstall the originally licensed version, then Anytime Upgrade again. However this can be avoided by saving a Windows 7 backup image of completed Anytime Upgrade.

If what your bookstore is offering is a retail full or upgrade version of Ultimate, those keys can also be inserted into the lower version to easily unlock the few extra features in minutes without having to reinstall, although you'll have a disk to do a reinstall and can migrate retail Windows 7 at any time you wish.

The university does sell retail versions at a significantly reduced price for students, faculty and staff, so it will be much cheaper to buy the upgrade version from there.

I'll go ahead and get it, and once I get it installed, I will definitely make a backup image regardless.

Thanks so much for the advice! I wish I could give you more karma, Greg.
