I am trying to upgrade from Vista Home Premium to Vista Ultimate. I am
running Mac OS-X on an I-mac using VM Fusion. Vista Home Premium runs as a
virtual machine. After starting Vista, I insert the upgrade disk, but
nothing happens. How can I complete the upgrade? I sure hope I didn't waste
$199 for the upgradge package.

If you bought the anytime upgrade then you run the license file and follow
the instructions. The instructions should be to insert your anytime upgrade
disk into the drive when prompted. Then you install Vista by clicking on the
setup or install option. The install will know you are doing an anytime
upgrade and will now install Vista Ultimate.
If you don't know where your "license" for the upgrade is, then...
From Microsoft...
"A personal digital locker is created for you when you purchase a Windows
Vista upgrade. Your digital locker stores your product keys and purchase
information which, when used together, allow you to reinstall your upgrade
if necessary. A copy of your upgrade is also stored in your digital locker.

To access your upgrade in your digital locker for recovery:

Click Start, and then click Control Panel. Double-click the digital locker
icon. Alternatively, you can go directly to the Digital Locker website.

I never get a prompt. After booting up via VM Fusion and getting into my
current version of Vista, I insert the disk, but when I go to "Start",
"Computer," the disk doesn't even appear. What do I do now?
