  1. Upgrading to Windows 11 pro with Windows 7 product key


    I recently have a clean install of windows 11 on my computer. I have one windows 7 home basic and one windows 7 professional product key. I tried activated it with the windows 7 pro key but it didn't work, while retry with the windows 7 home basic key did activate the installation. It was strange when I could use the windows 7 pro product key to activate windows 10 last year without any problems until I replaced the hard drive and clean install windows 11 see above. I used a third party checker and both keys are valid.I tried many methods, such asslui 4: tried many workarounds to enter the a

  2. Will a Windows 7 Ultimate key activate Windows 7 Pro?

    No - Typically as far as I know, a Windows 7 Ultimate key will unlock Windows 7 Ultimate.

    The thing is basically what is on the INSTALLATION disc is usually exactly the same no matter what version you buy, ALL the potential content is already on the disc, and it is the Product Key itself that tells the installer what options to install/how to install them, so that you land up with your specific product.

    Take an Ultimate DVD, install , but enter a windows Home key, and you will most likely get a Home install.

    ... or am I 'trippin? Pro's weigh in?

    Will a Windows 7 Ultimate key activate Windows 7 Pro?

    I've tried the opposite, was installing Win7 on a friends comp, my copy of win 7 (home premium) and his key (pro). When I entered the key, it gave me an error regarding versions. Skipping the initial key input also lead to a version error thing when Windows booted up. One big thing I noticed when I did that was it didn't let you choose the version to install if you skipped the key input. In short Vista lets you use whatever disc to install, 7 doesn't.
