Upgrading to Windows 7 Question RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I have a double question here. I have a Desktop & I have a Laptop computer. The Laptop uses Vista Home Premium while the Desktop uses Vista Business. When I run the Windows Compatible Test, the Desktop tells me I am only compatible to upgrade to Professional, Ultimate or Enterprise. While the Laptop tells me I can only upgrade to Home Premium or Ultimate.

    What I'd like to know is, why can't I upgrade the Desktop from Vista Business to Windows 7 Home Premium?

    Ideally, what I want to do is buy ONE version with TWO Licenses so I can just upgrade both computers. But, the only version that they both agree with is the Ultimate and I really do not want the Ultimate Version.

    So, can I just buy Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade for both computers?

    Thank you; corey

  • I'm also having problems upgrading form Vista Ultimate. I tried upgrading to Windows Professional N and it told me I couldn't. I got information that I could only upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate and I downloaded Windows 7 Ultimate N from MSDN. Now it's telling me I can't upgrade to that either! I don't want to install a new copy! Can anyone help?
