    Hello I have a doubt.

    In my PC I have installed Windows 7 Professional RTM 7600,
    Bios Slic 2.1 (Original untouched) Activated via Cert Installation and OEM SLP Professinal KEY with CMD.

    I just want to know if i can upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate RTM 7600 (Original DVD with $OEM$ Folder and everything). Don't want to make a clean install, too much programs and docs to backup.

    "I have the original Windows 7 Ultimate DVD untouched too"
    Can use any of them? well if is possible to upgrade. little help here. Thanks

    PS: I think its possible but need to install OEM Cert and key again. But I'm Not sure..

    He he! Sooo easy sorry for the DUMB question. I already upgraded a few minutes ago to Ultimate no problems. No need of DVD just used Windows Anytime Upgrade and enter Windows 7 Ultimate Edition OEM SLP KEY. It took only 9 minutes 53 seconds to upgrade. So thanks anyway..

    Yes it's VERY simple if you have a BIOS with SLIC 2.1, you "get" a free upgrade to Pro or Ultimate using Anytime upgrade and one of the OEM SLP keys found here:

    Strange that MS have made it so easy to upgrade without paying...of course, large companies and people that now using MDL at similar forums, don't know about this. So they pay of course.
