Install Windows 7 Home Premium first, and then buy a Windows 7 Professional product key via Windows Anytime Upgrade.

Once your payment has been accepted your product key will be e-mailed to you, which you'll need to print and keep.

The upgrade doesn't take long and does not affect personal data or installed applications, but as a safeguard you can always create a restore point before you start the upgrade.

You don't need software to copy the .pst files. Just cut and paste them when you are ready to move them. If they aren't kept in an organized folder, then search your drive for *.pst.

When I am working on someone's computer who still uses POP3 e-mail, I always create a folder on their new system called Mail_Archives, and stick their.pst files in there.

Upgrade Vista Business to Windows 7 Home Premium?
What are the "upgrade" rules? I don't need Windows 7 Professional but sometimes upgrades don't work if you are moving to a package lower on the feature tree. Please let me know if you have a definitive answer or give me a pointer to the correct place to ask.
