    Hi guys,
    at Xmas I have recived an ACER Aspire One D250 notebook with Windows 7 Starter installed.
    I would like to upgrade it to Ultimate without re-installing everything: I have already looked around this forum for a doc/guide but so far I could not find anything.

    Can you be so kind as to help me with this please?
    Thank you so much in advance
    Luca

    Find an ultimate key, preferably acer from the repository sticky. Start anytime upgrade (by typing anytime upgrade in the start menu, or in system properties I believe). Insert the acer ultimate slp key in the box, click OK or next or whatever it is and wait about ten minutes, after a reboot or two you will have ultimate.

    Of course this information is for educational purposes only.

    You would need a retail key to legitimatley upgrade to ultimate. To get ultimate any other way? well, the information is here, check the stickies.

    This is for SLP activations ONLY, will not work on retail activations. Actually it would work on retail with a legit, ultimate retail key that would then have to be activated (automatically done during the process I believe).

    If you did an anytime upgrade with an SLP key you would not be able to activate it, not sure if it would even allow you to do it (no reason to try it).

    Would anyone care to share the certificate from this exact Acer model? I have tried all the Acer 2.1 certificates in this forum, but Win7 still won't activate (has been OK for a while, but now reports otherwise :/ )
