vista anytime upgrade DVD

  aine 16:01 01 Feb 2009

On Ebay there is a DVD for the above, for sale £16, is this worth buying? The sellers say that if you have a registration for a previous version of Vista you can use that to activate this upgrade?. If I did purchase this, am I correct that the upgrade would not effect my programs and photos. Regards Aine

Why can't you just upgrade as per normal as they become available online.

I have a DVD which I used to upgrade from XP to Vista premium. If I reloaded this surely I would have to backup all the info that I have on my PC now? This I am loathe to do because I am not sure what I would have to backup?. I thought that by getting this would save me some problems. At present I have some niggardly problems that a reinstall would fix, A Repair did not fix them. Aine

My usual feeling when it comes to software on ebay is avoid like the plague...

I would agree. Better be safe than sorry.Search if you can find another means to resolve this

I have gone to the Dell support site, they suggested using the hidden partition. I have backed up my files as suggested by them. My query is my internet connection was very difficult to set up.If I now restore using their partition, will I lose this internet set up? Aine
