Yes, you will be able to upgrade from Windows 7 Home Premium to Ultimate. :)

It depends on how you wanted to upgrade for how to go about it though.

Have you compared the features to know for sure you need the expensive extra features in Ultimate?
Compare Windows 7 Editions


Compare Windows - Microsoft Windows
If so the most economical way to go is buy an Anytime Upgrade key. See tutorial in Shawn's post above.

If you buy the more expensive retail Upgrade then the key can still be inserted into Anytime Upgrade to unlock the extra features in minutes.
