    Hello



    I have been running Windows Vista Ultimate for the last 60 days or so (using the trial period) but I am quickly coming up to the end of the 120 days trial period.

    I have now purchased Window Home premium. Is there anyway to "convert" my existing Vista Ultimate install to my Windows Home version?



    Regards

    Jon

    No. MS provides a way to "upgrade" to Ultimate, but no way to "downgrade".

    My ultimate disc will not allow me to upgrade, it will through a clean install and this option is not looking favorable. Is it not possible or am I missing something?

    If the disk you're using doesn't allow an in-place upgrade, you're stuck having to use a Windows Anytime Upgrade disk.
