Upgrading to Professional

I have a computer with the Windows 7 Home edition and want to ugrade it to Professional edition. I do have the Professional edition, but I dont have a Professional edition serial key. Can I use the serial key for the Home edition on the Professional?

Your Serial Key from Windows 7 Home will not work for Windows 7 Professional..

I believe Microsoft is offering a deal for there "Anytime Upgrades"(US only)

Go to your start button and search Anytime Upgrade from there you can find out how much an upgrade will cost..

Hope this Helps..
