Fresh Install of Vistal Ultimate 1 Year afer An Anytime Upgrade?


C

Chris Mohan

Hi,

I bought a new laptop a year ago from lenovo w/ vista business on it. After
a couple of weeks I used Windows Anytime Upgrade to upgrade it to Vista
Ultimate. Now, a year later I want to re-install Vista (Ultimate) fresh.
QUESTION: When you've used Windows Anytime Upgrade how do you re-install your
OS directly to Ultimate without re-installing the original OS (Business) and
then going through Anytime Upgrade again. Is there a way to do this w/out
ordering the Ultimate DVD from lenovo?

You would need to install the qualifying Windows Vista Business
edition first that came with your Lenovo notebook, then perform
the upgrade to Vista Ultimate using the Anytime Upgrade disc.
So, you'll need to contact Lenovo support and request their
OEM Windows Vista Business recovery disc.
