None really, to be honest I wouldn't even know which are the main features that the Home Premium doesn't have.

I just wanted an actual DVD of Windows 7 as I was wiping the laptop, I got a good deal on it so said why not get Ultimate.

Cheers for the link to Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 too man, appreciated!

Cheers,

Paul

I'm sorry you bought a whole new expensive copy of Win7 when you already own one for the life of the PC to reinstall as often and in whatever way you want.

If I were you I would do a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 following the steps in the blue link to get a perfect reinstall. The installer is provided to burn to DVD or write to flash stick.

Then you can move your copy of Ultimate to any other PC that need an OS and not waste hundreds of dollars.
