Windows 7: Windows 7 Home to Ultimate with WAU upgrade - new installation disc

Windows 7 Home to Ultimate with WAU upgrade - new installation disc


I bought long time ago Windows 7 Home edition (FPP license) - non english and afterwards when I realized that it does not support more than 16GB RAM, I decided to buy WAU upgrade to Ultimate version.
I need to know, if it is possible to create or download legally just the Ultimate version with english language and use my KEY.

When I reinstall windows, then I have to do upgrade to Ultimate and then add english language package which is not translating everything. I don't like this. I would prefer just one instalation of Ultimate with english language and use my key.

Thanks for any help.

Thanks for your help. I quoted him. Is this all legal, right ? I mean that link he will provide and the activating. Which KEY will work for me ?
I have Win7 Home Premium FPP key + Ultimate WAU key. Both mine, purchased. Totally legal. I got original discs and packages.
My expectation is that Windows clean install of ultimate will refuse both keys. What you think ?

Can I use Windows 7 Home Premium on my desktop PC and my laptop at the - Microsoft Community

Windows 7 Home Premium Full Packaged Product is only intended for 1 computer, 1 installation.
the key which can be used with either 32 or 64 bit Windows 7 is only intended for use with 1 of the disk. You cannot use it to install both. 1 license, 1 installation, so choose wisely. If you want to install Windows 7 32 bit on another partition or another computer, you will need to purchase an additional license.

Hi Joohn,

Ultimate has NO licence restrictions for language packs.
Just use your original Czech, add the English version and if you dont want Czech just delete it.
