Will a Windows Anytime Upgrade to Ultimate work on a non-activated copy of Windows 7 Home Premium?

Microsoft says no. You must buy a license for Windows 7 Home Premium, (probably at reduced prices), then upgrade to Ultimate, which is not very surprising. Let me repeat that: Attempting to 'upgrade' from an unactivated copy is not possible. This is because you cannot UPGRADE from something FAKE.
