Windows 7: Installing Windows 7 Ultimate Upgrade

Installing Windows 7 Ultimate Upgrade


In 2009, I had purchased a genuine copy of Windows 7 Ultimate from a major retailer. I was upgrading from Vista, I believe. Had no problems.

In 2011, I had built a custom pc and tried installing my Windows 7 Ultimate and it gave me problems saying that it will not install on this pc.

I can't remember exactly how but a tech who worked at this major retailer informed me that I can do it on a new drive (of this new custom pc). I had to install it, then decline, activation, then reinstall it.

Can anyone please tell me if and how I can reinstall my genuine purchased copy of Windows 7 via this upgrade copy as I need to reinstall the os on this pc?

I thank you in advance!
