    Hey everybody! So I just installed Vista Home basis. I purchased the OEM copy via newegg.com My question is, if for some reason in the future I wish to upgrade to premium or ultimate, can I do so via the Windows Anytime Upgrade option that keeps popping up on my desktop. (stupid M$) Anyway, thanks.

    I think you can because iirc Bootcamp lets you upgrade operating systems.

    No you cannot do this with an OEM version - only the retail.

    Okay I have to qualify that. I purchased Vista 32 bit OEM and tried to upgrade to the 64 bit version (for $10) and was told that I could not do that with an OEM version. If you're asking if you could purchase say Vista Premium Upgrade then you probably can.
