    Question: I have a PC with OEM Home Premium. I also have a brand new retail
    Ultimate Upgrade DVD(received for Birthday). Can I use Ultimate Upgrade DVD
    to upgrade my home/premium to ultimate?

    Thanks,

    Charlie

    If you are in a country supported by the feature, you can use the "Anytime
    Upgrade" from within Vista and your Home Premium media to upgrade to
    Ultimate. The additional features will be added to your current
    installation.

    I believe this method is cheaper than buying the retail Upgrade box with the
    downside being that you won't have the actual Ultimate box, just the anytime
    upgrade key.

    My experience is that you cannot upgrade home premium. A full installation
    might work but upgrade fails every time - at least on my brand new Dell
    laptop.

    Worked fine here - Dell XPS410, came with Home Premium, upgraded to
    Ultimate - not a hitch!
