Changing Window 7 OEM product key.

By .Martin. ·
so this is what I'm looking at doing:

I have a HP laptop, currently running 32-bit OEM windows Home Premium. I recently got the Pro version (full retail), and wanted to upgrade the laptop.

thought it would be easy sailing, hitting the 'change product key' in system properties, but it seems HP has hidden the button.

also tried changing it in command prompt, to no avail.

also went out on a limb and tried windows anytime upgrade, (unsurprisingly) this also failed.

does anyone here know a solution
