Home premium to Ultimate upgrade.

Trying to upgrade. HP box came with Home prem. installed. When I do the install, it gets down to the end and says it cannot configure some device, the install fails and it rolls back to Home Prem. The box woks fine with Home premium so in my mind there should not be config. issues with the upgrade. Any ideas?

I found this problem a few times with different laptops, including toshiba 300,350 an hp going mainly from vista to 7 ultimate,was because partitioning,wrong buttons,basically wrong setup.the laptops were two special entertainment laptops,one xp desktop gamingAMD,...toshiba have a specific upGrade-for each model, and there are hundreds...older systems had better settups for music /dvds.Newer models dont have same,they leave drivers out.and configure differently Best plan Go to YOUR COMPUTERS web site,type in every detail and get Questioned why your running the incorrect version ..(because you will probably end up at a forum/tech advise..)if you want it to run properly...or you can make do with your incorrect config. Lastly you might end up with a version like Win 8 that is not ready,doesnt have many drivers -ITS AHEAD of its Time...i run win 7 startup in desktop mode so my mates can use... enough info......

I have purchased a medion all in one pc in spain which has windows 7 home prem pre-installed, it is of course in spanish,, how do i change it english. Thank you.


unfortunately, it looks as though you can only do so if you upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate, as any of the lesser versions (Starter, Home Premium, or Professional) do not have support for the Multilingual User Interface (Language Pack).
