Re: Home Premium to Ultimate Failure

The key on the bottom of the notebook is a Home Premium key and I believe states that right on the sticker.
You need to use the Ultimate key that you got with your anytime upgrade.

Purchased an HP notebook with premium and set it up but did not activate yet.

Then purchased an Ultimate Upgrade with anytime upgrade

Installed the upgrade using the key from the bottom of the PC when it asked
for the current product key.

No errors. Finishes the upgrade and restarts and still is running Home

Why did ultimate not take?

We need ultimate to login to a domain.
