I don't think so, ultimate/enterprise tend to be 'top of the tree' in what I understand from the bottom table on - Windows 7 Upgrade Paths
My office PC has Win 7 Ultimate installed and I was looking at putting Windows 8 Enterprise on it but it seems that there is no upgrade path to do this, but there is an upgrade path to go from Windows 7 Enterprise to Windows 8 Enterprise.
So the question is this, is it possible to upgrade a Windows 7 Ultimate to Windows 7 Enterprise from which I could then upgrade to Windows 8 Enterprise?
We have all the MVL etc. Google Foo is letting me down today. I know I can rebuild from scratch but am trying to avoid this if possible.
Arnt enterprise and ultimate identical except one is vlk and one is oem/retail making changing pointless?
On win 7 i managed to upgrade pro to enterprise roughly speaking changed some reg key and did an upgrade install might work
I may just stick a disc in on Monday and see what happens. What was the Reg key you edited?
This is a slightly more updates version of that above link: Windows 8 Upgrade Paths
Aka no it's not possible Windows 7 ulimate doesn't count as a high enough version to upgrade to Windows 8 enterprise. It's only pro/enterprise to enterprise.
(Or I may have misread, and ignore me! )

Change EditionID to Enterprise and ProductName to Enterprise and it should work.Code:Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion] "EditionID"="Ultimate" "ProductName"="Windows 7 Ultimate"
Thanks, I'll have a look tomorrow.
