Vista Home Basic 'upgrade' to Vista Ultimate (full version)
Greetings,

I live in Australia and currently use Vista Home Basic (OEM version from
DELL, new PC). I am planning to change to Vista Ultimate - I did not purchase
the 'upgrade' version, but the full version. This cannot be changed.

I am curious on how I change the OS to Ultimate. Can I easily upgrade with
the Ultimate disc or do I have to do a clean install or does anyone know of
what I should do?

Many thanks in advance.
Maddison

Hi,

You can easily upgrade using the full version disk, provided that it is a
retail version and not an OEM full version.
