    I totally agree with acrsn, to be honest you do not really get many computers that come with windows 7 ultimate even branded machines i.e, dell, HP, e.c.t usually home premium at the most unless you pay extra. And you should have OEM COA certificate on your computer if this was OEM:NON SLP i,e, system builders licence. another point is if you have bought computer from a shop and paid separately for windows ultimate they are not allowed to activate machine.
