win7 anytime upgrade oddity
Ok, so the head has given me her sons new asus eee pc netbook, with win7 starter on it, and new, boxed copy of win7 premium.
anytime upgrade says it has failed due to being unable to upgrade the version of windows i have, to the version i have a serial number for.
The setup run from the dvd gives a similar failure notice.
I've just shut the pc down to boot from an external DVD drive to flatten the machine and start again, and it tells me not to power off the pc as it is upgrading windows, it has reset the machine 3 times and is now telling me it is running home premium, i can connect to home groups and all sorts that i couldn't before... seriously, wtf?
