Windows 7: Change from Home Premium to Pro without Anytime Upgrade

07 Jan 2010   #1

W7 Home Premium
Change from Home Premium to Pro without Anytime Upgrade

Hi Everyone - New here. I've searched and haven't seen this addressed specifically, so any help will be appreciated.

I currently am running win 7 home premium upgrade. I purchased this upgrade and have the media. I also recently purchased win 7 professional upgrade. Both versions are 64 bit. I'd like to 'change' from my retail copy of home premium to my retail copy/key of professional. Any suggestions on how I can do this without a clean install?

Can I simply 'enter new key'? Can I enter an "anytime upgrade" key? Can I do an upgrade in place using the Win 7 Pro media?
