    Hi

    Can I upgrade to Vista Ultimate from an OEM installed home premium, using
    the OEM disc that they gave me with the laptop?

    Also will this disc also allow me to upgrade a preinstalled OEM on a new HP
    dv9288ea? I am happy to buy two keys,

    Hi,

    If the OEM disk is a generic full image disk, then you should be able to use
    it to upgrade the machine it came with for this. As to using it on another
    machine, that is highly unlikely as they are usually bios-locked and will
    not function on a different manufacturer's system.
