    Hi everyone i just have one question. I already have Windows 7 home premium on a legit dvd i bought, how do i put that into my laptop and install the ultimate version on it without downloading ISO from here? is there a way to put an unltimate product key in when it asks me instead of the home premium one that comes with the disk.


    Sorry if this has been asked previously.

    you could install what you have then use an oem key for ultimate to do an anytime upgrade then activate with a loader after that but you would still be downloading something but not like 3gb.

    @cooltt, Just forget your legit key, get SLP OEM from stickies, if you do not have W7 then download it or just edit the DVD you already have (it has all versions on it anyway) & install it with SLP OEM key, once done install certificate (also from stickies)
    Mod BIOS to have SLIC 2.1 or use loader as already suggested

    If you have no idea what all above means then do one of the two:

    - learn (by reading stickies as a start)
    or
    - just buy Ultimate in the shop
