Can I downgrading windows 7 ultimate to win 7 Premium/Pro?

September 7, 2015 at 13:39:36
Specs: Windows XP, AMD FX6300
Typo: Sorry that should read "downgrade"

Just as the question asks can I downgrade the OS obviously both being 64 bit, and still have all my files and "my documents" folders etc intact, so programs will operate without any changes updates or other amendments?

I heard of some software that does this but I have my doubts, advice?

cheers

I am not sure why you would want to do this since Ultimate is simply Pro with a few extra features.
From what I understand, All Windows from Home to ultimate install roughly the same but the key you enter determines what features you are shown and allow. If you changed the key to a Pro key that you purchase, it should effectively do that (wait for others to confirm this) but why would you want to pay more money to get less system than you already have?

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I can't think of any reason for doing this downgrade & after looking at the comparison table, I still don't see any reasonable reason for doing so. Care to enlighten us?

I also looked over the list and though I see no reason for 99% of us to spend the extra money for Ultimate, I see absolutely no reason for downgrading (assuming that you have a legal copy).
