Can't Upgrade to Vista Ultimate


Recommended Posts

Running Vista Home Premium which came installed on My Dell XPS One. Bought an upgrade disk to get Vista Ultimate but no can do. Get this messge when trying to install:

"Upgrade as been disabled. The upgrade cannot be started. To upgrade, cancel the installation and then choose to upgrade to a version of windows that is more recent than the version you are curently running".

What am I missing here? The disk doesn't give me an option to choose to choose Ultimate. Could it be because I'm running Dell's OEM version of Vista?

Most likely this is because you are going from Vista to Vista. Microsoft does not concider Vista to Vista and upgrade and would require you to purchase the full and not the upgrade package.
