How do I replace Windows 7 Ultimate with Windows 7 Home Premium?

By Machin12 ·
I recently bought a PC with Windows 7 Ultimate pre-loaded. I later found that this was an illegal copy and I was left without a serial no. In order to legalise the s/w I bought a copy of Windows 7 but by mistake bought the Home Premium edition instead of the Ultimate edition. Can I load this 'cheaper' version without having to reinstall all my s/w and data? (the existing s/w obviously does not recognise the serial of the Home Premium edition)

Because if you did, I would be after the shop to fix the problem for me. As for installing the new version of Win 7, have a read here >
but make sure you back up any data that you may want saved first.
