    I have a Toshiba laptop which came with Vista home premium pre-installed. Can I use the Anytime upgrade disc which came with it, to upgrade to Vista Ultimate using a Toshiba Ultimate OEM key?
    Cheers

    Thanks for the reply. I was hoping to avoid re-installing some automotive diagnostic software I am using on it. It took ages to get that working properly.

    Thanks for your help, but I've decided to leave well alone for now. When I tried the anytime upgrade disc, the upgrade option showed "disabled".
    The only available option was for a clean install.

    Good plan, I have a friend with an XP system we just won't touch because she has proprietary software for psychological evaluations that is pretty much irreplaceable. And no, I don't let her evaluate me, or at least if she does I don't want to know about it.
