zondag 28 februari 2010 21:28Recently, I purchased an Asus laptop with an OEM Vista 64-bit installation. I then ordered their free upgrade to Win 7, but I couldn't wait for it to arrive to try the new OS. So I purchased a student version (2 activations only, no support) of Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit (full edition) and am using this now. However, I have just received the free Asus upgrade by mail: Win 7 64-bit Home Premium (upgrade). All have product keys.
1. Is it possible to easily downgrade to this lower version of Win 7, the Home Premium upgrade?
2. Will my Win 7 Ultimate activation be credited back to me? Or will I lose 1 of my 2 activations allowed for that product key?
I know it sounds like I am nitpicking, but, as a college student, every penny counts :)
Hope that made sense. Thank you.

A. No. You would have to reformat your hard drive, reinstall Windows Vista, then upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium.
Q. Will my Win 7 Ultimate activation be credited back to me?
A. All you have to do is "activate by phone" if you are unable to activate Windows 7 Ultimate in the future.
