    Hi,

    I wonder whether it's possible to upgrade a cra**ed version of Vista Ultimate to W7 Ultimate?

    Vista has been cracked with Vista Loader, which flashed the bios, so it shows an OEM key.

    I read that in this case no W7 loader/activator is not required, that W7 will be activated upon install.

    Another post claims it will kill the Vista permanently.

    Clean install of W7 is not an option, stricktly an upgrade from within, as the laptop has dmaged DVD drive, so can't read any media, can't boot therefore.

    Any suggestions...? Many thanks

    boot from USB not supported, old laptop...

    so, just once again UPGRADE from within Vista is the ONLY option, please advise, thanks

    I did exactly what you want. Just upgraded over Vista with the built in loader, then used Daz's loader to remove the old loader and install a new one. Worked perfectly for me.
