Upgrading Vista Business to Ultimate

by sizl / July 31, 2007 4:58 PM PDT

I'm just curious if my media center on my VAIO CR will work regularily if I upgrade from Vista Business to Ultimate. Also, will the AV Mode button function properly?

It should...

If you upgrade instead of performing a clean installation all of the manufacturer's tool panels and addons will remain, so functionality of the hardware options should remain. However, Windows Media Center will be added, so it may take the default over your current program(s) and force you to reset it/them as default.

Thanks for the reply. Has anyone updated their computer from business to ultimate and experienced issues?
