Upgrade from Home Premium to Ultimate or Business?

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Installation' started by Tom O''Connell, Nov 20, 2007.

  1. Hi-
    I'm thinking of upgrading from Home Premium on a new PC so I can get the
    backup program. (yes, I know a lot of people think Acronis is the way to
    go... I might).

    My question is... any time one is loading windows, the advice is always...
    DO A CLEAN INSTALL... I'm not sure that is even possible since the only OS
    ever on this pc is Vista. Have there been any problems doing Vista version
    upgrades? should/could this be a clean install???

    thanks,

    tom

    Hi Tom,

    Version to version upgrades are fine. You might want to consider that it'd
    be far cheaper to use Acronis or a similar imaging program than paying for
    an upgrade to Ultimate, particularly if there are no other features that you
    plan to make use of.

    Are you sure imaging and upgrading he is talking about are the same
    operations? Good chance not.

    Are you sure imaging and upgrading he is talking about are the same
    I wasn't in any way stating they were the same. If you'll read the entire
    original post, you'll find that the reason for upgrading is to take
    advantage of the full PC backup:

    "I'm thinking of upgrading from Home Premium on a new PC so I can get the
    backup program."

    What I stated was:

    "You might want to consider that it'd be far cheaper to use Acronis or a
    similar imaging program than paying for an upgrade to Ultimate, particularly
    if there are no other features that you plan to make use of."

    Meaning that if the only reason he is upgrading is for this one feature,
    then investing in good imaging software might be a wiser, and cheaper,
    investment.
