Reinstalled windows 7 with wrong disc RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    So recently I re-installed Windows 7 on my parents PC but as we didn't have the original disc from when the computer was bought I used a disc from a different machine.

    However through my own stupidity I forgot to check the versions and I have now installed Windows Home Premium on a machine that only has a product key for Windows Pro. This obviously means that it won't validate, I've also tried the anytime upgrade option which doesn't work, "the key you entered is for an edition of Windows that does not work with Windows Anytime Upgrade."

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance
