    right now i'm telling myself i want to get rid of my windows 7 ultimate.reason its not not a real copy.i removed wat before when i bought a serial number months ago from ebay for like $18 just to find out like 6 months later its not genuine anymore.so i reinstalled wat.the thing is i don't want to update my win 7 just to find out i have a non genuine copy again.
    what i want to know is if its possible to go back to windows 7 home premium without restoring factory setting.i don't need windows ultimate,besides the reason i liked it was because i like seeing the word ultimate when starting up my computer.

    every site i go to talks about a recovery disk or partition drive. i don't have a recovery disk but i do have a partition drive for recovery and this searching without losing data on google.

    Format and reinstall.

    There is no 'downgrade' path.

    It looks like all you need to do is install Windows Loader 1.9.7.

    How about just using a windows 7 activator tool?

    Windows Loader 1.9.7 is one way but if the computer has a slic2.1 bios you could just install a new oem ultimate key and cert.

    If Windows 7 Home Premium was factory installed chances are it has slic2.1 to check for slic2.1 run "slic dump toolkit 3.2" (google it) [​IMG]

    as for the key not working

    im pretty sure it used to be a MSDN key that people were mass selling, microsoft then bans these keys after finding out about it

    Chew-WGA 0.9 works just fine. No need to downgrade and go through all the trouble.
    Just crack it and enjoy your computer [​IMG]
