Anytime Upgrade Question
If I purchase 7 Ultimate via the anytime upgrade option in Windows (currently running Professional), and for whatever reason end up re-installing Windows later on (dead hard drive, etc), how would I go about getting Ultimate back, if at all, or would I have to re-purchase it? Thanks, Michael
