    Hi -

    Can I upgrade Vista Home Premum (OEM) to Vista Home Premium (Retail
    Upgrade)? I realize this is theoretically the same product. I'm
    looking to replace a polluted OEM version of Vista produced by HP.

    Thanks for any advice.

  2. To get rid of the background pollution, caused by the hardware
    manufacturers, you would have to perform a clean install. Why don't you get
    a plain vanilla OEM version for about half the price of retail? It is
    basically retail without any M/S support. You are your own support.
