    Thanks Ginsko for your solution. But I misstated my problem. What I really need is a "system

    configuration" or a "program configuration" . . . whatever it is named . . . to make my Vista Basic install all due upgrades, not some of them.

You need a Vista premium disk to upgrade to Vista premium.

Just instert the Vista premium disk and start the installation.

If installation does not start, you will need to boot from setup CD, sometimes you have to change the bios boot sequence in bios settings, to start the installation from CD.

I have had to reinstall a laptop, I installed vista home basic on my daughters laptop only to find out that the product key is for vista home premium but do not have the disk what can i do


This is a guess and a risky one but you could try going into the all programs windows upgrade click on that and it will ask you to enter a product key (I"m assuming you have vista already in and running). The upgrade will download and make sure and activate after you have installed windows home premium. You'll like that edition better anyway.

Not sure what happened ,lost parts of my os for vista home premium 64 bit ,no sound, not even beepcodes,no text when atempting restore ,limited control in command promt, still have some stuff ,pictures...


Which do you have - Vista Home Premium or Vista Home Basic? The title of this question category and what you said you have doesn't match. I'll assume you had Home Premium 64 Bit. Yes you can upgrade to Windows 7, 64 Bit. Please be aware that there is the 64 Bit and the 32 Bit versions. Check with your OEM of the computer before you upgrade. In the upgrade process, Windows 7 will create a folder called "windows.old" once the install has completed. There you will find the data you had from the old operating system like pictures and documents. Before you do the upgrade, I recommend downloading and installing the Windows 7 Advisor to check on any software and hardware issues - the advisor will list those problems before you can upgrade so that you can make the corrections.

Insert your Windows Vista Basic CD into the CD ROM drive and restart your computer.

It will autoboot from the CD and you can reinstall Vista Basic.

Should you have further problems don't hesitate to give more details.
