Hi guys,

Just a quick question which hopefully you can answer.

I am currently running windows xp professional, I am looking to upgrade to vista, can I buy and successfully install the windows 7 home upgrade package, or do I have to get the Windows 7 professional upgrade package?

Cheers

Although you upgrade xp>vista>win7 (see my sticky) I would advise using your win7 home premium to do a clean install. Just install your upgrade w/o a key and then from within win7, do an upgrade and this time use your key.
