    What's the best/easy way to convert my Windows 7 Enterprise N to Windows 7 Enterprise *without* re-installing it?

    I guess you could install one of these if adding the missing features is enough:

    So you have a product key for Enterprise but you installed Enterprise N?

    Or did you get the key after installing N-version?
