As you may have recalled I bought my wife a new Toshiba laptop for her birthday. [Here is the unit I bought] The laptop originally came with Windows 7 Home Premium which I wanted to upgrade to Ultimate. So this evening I pulled out the Ultimate disk and used the built in Windows Anytime Upgrade feature which is built into Windows 7.

After typing in the serial number, getting it verified as being genuine, the install process started. In less than 10 minutes the upgrade was complete and Ultimate was up and running.

I just I thought I would share this since I was surprised the upgrade process was so quick.
