Microsoft Windows 7 Professional Anytime Upgrade from Home Premium - Retail

Don Wiss

I just ordered this. Then I read it more carefully. Does this mean I can
only upgrade from an existing Win7 install? Or will it upgrade from a Vista
install, which is what I want. I think the Vista is a Home Premium. (It's a
laptop which is hidden away in a closet.)

It is a Windows 7 to Windows 7. Not Vista to Win 7.

Thanks. The order has been canceled. I gather than instead of an $82
upgrade cost (Newegg) I have an $158 upgrade cost (Buy.com). That is a bit
excessive. I guess instead I'll live with the Vista and find some software
that removes all the crapware on it. My reasons for upgrading is it would
put me in sync folder-wise with my Win 7 Pro desktop and with formatting it
would have been a way to clear out all the crapware that Sony put on it.

You need this, the PC Decrapifier. I've used it and it works great. It
does a system scan, then presents a list of what it can remove. Check
all, or pick and choose, your choice.

Yes.


Or will it upgrade from a Vista install, which is what I want.

No. Sorry, you're out of luck, having ordered the wrong thing. The
Microsoft name "Anytime Upgrade" is a very poor and confusing one, in
my view.
