Upgrading from Vista Home Premium to Ultimate

I just otday purchased a low-cost Dell Inspiron box, and was told that it could connect to our domain running Vista Home Premium. this is NOT the case, and apparently I need Business, enterprise or Ultimate... BUT, the Anytime Upgrade link only allows me to buy a DVD to be sent to me. This takes too long.

I need to upgrade to a Vista version that lets me get this computer on the company domain or else the computer is virtually worthless and I'll have to return to Best Buy.

Can you please help me figure out how I can upgrade? Or should I just reformat the disk and install XP?

My dell inspiron 531 PC just keeps beeping and will not boot up!


The beeping is called a beep code, you may be able to check the connections on the inside but only if you know what you're doing. You will most likely have to take it in the be serviced.

Vista RAM usage ?


The minimum recommended ram for Vista is 1 GB, generally accepted practical minimum is 2 GB. A 1 GB system will be kinda laggy. Maximum RAM for 32 bit Vista is 4 GB.

Vista Home Premium is roughly equivalent to Windows XP Media Center Edition (Has Media Center, cann't be put on a DOMAIN type network)

Vista Business is roughly equivalent to Windows XP Professional (Can Join a Domain, Doesn't have Media Center)

Vista Ultimate has all available freatures of Vista, you can do any windows function with Ultimate
