Vista Home Premium to retail Ultimate w/o reinstallation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I currently have Windows Vista Home Premium x64 installed on my computer.


    I purchased Vista Ultimate from a retailer. 


    How can I upgrade to Ultimate without reinstalling the operating system.  I was under the impression this could be done (Anytime Upgrade). 


    When I select install from the cd it prompts for a complete installation (32-Bit).  This is not desirable.


    When I select anytime upgrade I am prompted to repurchase Windows Vista Ultimate, also not desirable


    So, I have a legit licenes to Windows Vista Ultimate, how can I upgrade to it.
