You can't. An Ultimate Key will only work for Ultimate. You could probably find someone to trade you a HP key for your Ultimate key, but that's about the best you can hope for at this point.

You can't.

Why would you not just install Ultimate???

Ultimate is not more demanding than Home Premium.

Difference is only a few apps and tools.

When you delete ei.cfg it will ASK you during install which version you want.. you have to select the version you have a key for.
