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......

UPGRAde MY WINDOW 7


Windows 7 is available in several different versions, each of which includes different features targeted at different types of users.


Windows 7 Home Premium is ideal for the typical computer user and her home computer. However, Home Premium does not include every feature that Windows 7 has to offer.


If you find that some tasks exist that you can't perform with Home Premium, you may want to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate.


Microsoft includes a feature in Windows 7 Home Premium that makes upgrading a simple task.


Click "Start" at the bottom left corner of the screen, then click "All Programs."


Scroll to "Windows Anytime Upgrade" and click it.

Click "Go online to choose the edition of Windows 7 that's best for you."


Click the green "Buy" button under "Ultimate."


Type your billing and payment information into the requested fields on-screen, then follow the prompts, making sure to print out the upgrade key you receive at the end of the process.


Click "Start," then "All Programs" again and choose "Windows Anytime Upgrade."


Click "Enter an Upgrade Key" and type in your upgrade key to unlock the Windows 7 Ultimate features.


Hope this helps

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).

How to format vista home?


If you run the recovery CD you do have, when it reinstalls the operating system, it should also reformat the hard drive first, and give you a completely clean install.

are you trying to install a different version of windows? are you running the recovery software from the HP CD, or from the local hard drive?

also, when you run the recovery software, does it give you an option for what kind of recovery to run? Be certain to select the most thorough option listed.
