There should not be.  Just make sure to reload all of your drivers and utilities once you install your new OS.

anytime upgrade


You did it correctly. Shouldn't disturb any drivers/peripherals.

Re: Windows 7 home premium to ultimate upgrade.

For others who might install Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate clean by booting from a DVD...

 

You need to know that Windows 7 Home Premium already contains the additional features. One needs simply to unlock them. This process does not disturb drivers or any other installed software.

 

   Upgrade to another edition of Windows 7 by using Windows Anytime Upgrade

 

Reminds me of days long ago in IBM when we increased the speed of card-handling machines by changing the size of a pulley. Yes, the price (rent) of the machine went up.
