i used any time upgrade. for the home baisc edition, i purchased the key of ultimate windows, and when i just tested with the anytime upgrade, it did the upgrade, and no issues. (i purchased the key of fresh install and didn't purchased the key of upgrade but it worked ! )

for the home premium i purchased the upgrade key, and it worked there also.

working fine now.
