How to change to a different Serial number
Hi All,

Currently I have the serial number for the business version. But I have also
a serial number for the Ultimate.
How can I enter the new serial number for the Ultimate version?

Thanks,

Joe

How to upgrade to Ultimate from Business version?
Hi All,

OK I have the business version installed. Now I entered by mistake the
Business edition key.
The question is how do I upgrade to the Ultimate version? When I tried to
install from the DVD
the Upgrade option was disabled.

It says that I need to install it from Windows, but from where?

Thanks,

Joe

You don't say how you were trying to upgrade!
I have to presume that you were trying to boot the DVD!

Start the Business Version, put the DVD in the Drive, and follow
instructions to upgrade.

That way you are installing from within Windows!

Hi Mick,

Yes it was from the bootable DVD. So I guess after Windows business is
loaded then I stick the DVD and will prompt me if I want to upgrade.

Thanks for that and it simpler then I thought.

Joe
