    Hi all. I had installed 7 home premium b/c I had preordered it, and now realize I can activate ultimate for free. Is there any way to upgrade from home premium to ultimate without having to reinstall? It tells me I need to use windows anytime upgrade, any way around that?

    Well if you want to keep your OS legal use anytime upgrade.But if you want to have Ultimate you can do that too, but depending on your computer a lo*der might not work. Not sure about the upgrade feature, someone else might know a bit more about that.

    You ca upgrade without any disc. Its easy. Go to Start - All programs - Windows Anytime Upgrade. Then enter the lenovo oem key and continue. If it doesn't accept the key use orbit and hazar loader, nothing will happen except now you can use the oem key. Then star Windows Anytime Upgrade, enter the key, wait 10minutes and whoa.

    You could always try :D if it gives no option to upgrade you can always abort.

    Windows anytime upgrade worked. I think i'm going to stick with home premium though. I pre ordered it, and I really don't see any need to have ultimate. I just keep rearming until my product key arrives. Thanks for the help anyway
