    Hi:

    I bought vista business because upgrade advisor showed no problem
    upgrading from media center XP to vista business edition. when I was
    installing it, however, it says no upgrade available for media center XP to
    vista business edition(I absolutely don't want to install business on another
    drive or partition because then all the Manuafacturer softwares and drivers
    won't be able to be installed on business); it can be only upgraded to
    ultimate or home edition. Now if i want to install vista at all, do i need to
    buy a new ultimate or buy upgrade from business to ultimate? I really need
    help please.
    Thanks

  2. Return your Windows Vista Business Edition and
    purchase Windows Vista Ultimate or Vista Home Premium.
