I bought a new laptop that came with Windows 7 Home Premium installed (a HP Envy17 1050ea if it matters). I need to use several VM's that I used with an older machine that ran XP Pro so I need to upgrade. As I understand it, buying a Home Premium to Professional Anytime Upgrade just gives me a license key - not a disc?
I already have an OEM version of Home Premium that I bought for my HTPC. Can I use this disk to install Professional off using the Upgrade key? I think I know the answer, but I want to make sure.
