How to upgrade from Win 7 Home to Win 7 Ultimate in HP notebook?

Hi,


I have HP Pavilion dv6 notebook, Core i5 processor, 4 Gb ram, ATI mobility Radeon Premium graphic card with Windows 7 Home installed. I wish to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate while preserving the HP utilities like "Configure switchable graphics" with which I can select either the Intel power saving Gpu or the ATI high performance Gpu. Kindly inform how to do this and your advises.

I wish to upgrade to "Windows 10 Professional" and this is only possible if I have "Windows 7 Ultimate" on my laptop.

Wow you want to waste a windows 7 Ultimate key on Windows 10 ?

I`m searching through the tutorials.

Maybe running the Ultimate install disc from inside windows will work, I`ll see if Brink can help.

Do you have a Windows 7 Ultimate key?

You use to be able to upgrade thur Windows 7 Upgrade to another edition of Windows 7 by using Windows Anytime Upgrade but I think MS stop doing it.

Windows 10 Professional OEM is $140

Anytime Upgrade for 7 has been dead for quite awhile.

I would just upgrade to 10 Home, then upgrade that to Pro, if you really need Pro.

Thank You Shawn

I saw that tutorial, but because it said Vista I did not post it, thought it might cause confusion.
