I'm not sure if this is a trick question or if I just can't find the answer (and Lord knows I've Googled it!) because it's so simple. :wacko:

 

 

If I'm upgrading a computer running Windows 7 Starter to Windows 7 Ultimate using the aforementioned Windows Anytime Upgrade, how much more additional hard drive space do I need, if any?

 

Any help / links, feedback from folks who may have done this, would be & will be greatly appreciated.

 

in the technological weeds,

Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor is a program that you can download and run on your computer to find out if you have the necessary hardware to use specific features of a particular edition of Windows 7. To download Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor, go to the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor website. The download is about 5 megabytes.

The Windows 7 operating system has all of the files for all of the versions included, the upgrade simply unlocks these files.  It will not require any extra hdd space.

Thanks dc3 - I was trying to avoid a whole bunch of house cleaning when that thought occurred me.

 

I just discovered this week that any install of Windows 7 includes all the versions, so it should've been obvious what the answer was.

 

Appreciate you taking the time to confirm this for me.

 

See you in the Forums.
