    Hey all,

    My laptop originally came with Windows 7 Home Premium, but is there some way for me to get to Ultimate via the Anytime upgrade function?. Originally Home Premium was actually enough, but I need BitLocker as well as Windows XP Mode support, but those 2 are only included with Ultimate >_<.

    I tried a few of the codes that are around but neither seems to work as Anytime Upgrade rejects them as not being valid for upgrading >_<. So what can I do to get around this issue WITHOUT formatting and reinstalling.

    Any help or pointers are more then welcome....

    If you choose to pay for it. You will be presented with the option to Upgrade<- Which will install over current OS and keep everything the way it is only thing it will do is update your W7 to Ultimate
