As I said earlier - the installed OS is already Windows 7 Ultimate - and no Anytime Upgrade is available for that.
The only available upgrades for it are to Windows 8 Pro or Windows 8.1 Pro.

It is not activated.
What happens when you attempt to activate it? - what exact error code/message do you get?

Please remove your Keys from the post - they are likely to be stolen (the part left in the MGADiag report is OK)

Did you activate the Home Premium before applying the Upgrade?

NOTE: - you need to have downloaded the Home Premium and installed and activated that, before applying the Upgrade.

Yes you have too before the upgrade starts.. Here is another screen shot showing I have never installed updates .. When I was upgrading The box said 135 updates I thought your computer has to be updated before upgraded...I apriciate you still hanging in there..Another thing I have been trying to download net frame work 3.5 and can not do it it dissapears or get error is it normal for things on my desktop if they have a short cut arrow and I copy as pathh it says public desktop.. Here is an update log from $windows~Q always thought that was if you did a install that was like a backup file.. Anyway thankyou..

It's only essential to Activate prior to the upgrade process.
.NET 3.5 is part of Windows 7 - it doesn't need to be downloaded.

There is really no point in attempting to update your current installation until you can get it activated, as you may well have to reformat and reinstall Home Premium again - in fact, that would be my recommendation.

Reformat and reinstall Home Premium - install the chipset drivers to give you a stable internet connection and decent graphics, then activate it, and do the upgrade.

I appreciate your time.. Like I said in first post maybe this would help answer other questions.. Why I have to reinstall all the time..The reason for haveing to get an iso download of windows is because dvd drive wont load certain things.. I have 2 sets of factory hp installation disk ca nt load. One OEM that I purchased cant load..Why I am updated but show no updates installed Why cant I download some files.. Why If I Go to page where shows wether authorized or not it says no and next time will say yes.. Why I cant change the setting so the icon or whatever its called the anytime update shows in start up menu..Why I did a formt after error screen tells me there is no operating system faught erros saying missing a file in partition missing so I could not load windows But I have a $INPLCE~TR and a $wINDOWS~Q file in C:.. I can go on and on..Granted you are 100% correct easier to do reinstall so I have the icon back..I do not know how you feel about the accuracy of silent runners program I will attach a log from them that I just ran.. Another forum told me to run and submit the logs and they would get back.. never heard...Either way THANKYOU...
