    Hi there,

    I have Windows 7 Professional x64 SLIC Mod Activated, I was wondering if I can upgrade to Ultimate without formatting (keeping settings, programs etc.) , I downloaded the Ultimate x64 ISO and ran it then selected upgrade, It tells me I can't upgrade from Win7 and have to use the Windows 7 Anytime Upgrade.

    Is it possible ?

    humm ...

    it seems to require a "special key" ... which are very difficult to find, contrary to a key for a version Ultimate "normal" :rolleyes:

    Yes, you can upgrade; just take the path of windows anytime upgrade. I have a slic 2.1 bios and i was able to upgrade from an unactivated home premium edition to the professional edition. It's just a matter of keying-in your oem slp upgrade key and everything that follows is like a piece of cake. Takes roughly a little over 12 minutes to do the chore.

    You're right on the money noyod! I just put in the Dell SLP key and some minutes later here I am, running Ultimate.

    Thank you very much bro. And thanks to all who tried to help me.
