Legally you would need to buy Home Premium Full.

The truth is, at least here in the USA, that we can normally reinstall the OEM and when we activate we just have to call MS and say we replaced some bad hardware. To get to Home Premium you would then use the Anytime Upgrade but if you anytime an OEM you still have an OEM.

Yes you can upgrade to Home Premium! First Save all your personeal stuff then Boot from your OEM Win7 Premium disk (See: articles by "Paul Thurrott's Web Site) here it tell's you how to do this the leageal way, Microsoft knows this and they have aproved it.

I have a Win7 premium disk and this is how i did it, you will have to install it "two" (2) times to get it right so serch Paul's site and you will find out how to install "Win7 Premium oem"

Thanks for understanding! :)
