You can most likely insert the Pro Upgrade key into Anytime Upgrade to unlock the extra features in Pro. Type Anytime in Start Search box to start process.

There aren't that many extra features in Pro that you may even want to use. I never notice the difference between my Ultimate and HP machines.

Windows 7 Pro

Before you can get the Student Win7 Pro, you must have an email address at the school.

After I downloaded and burned the install disk (I had them send me an install disk, for an extra $15), I did the clean install rather than an upgrade. I am not sure how that works with an HP, but should do a clean install.
