Hi Lewis, you can upgrade your Vista Home Edition to Vista Ultimate edition and you won't loose your Vista Home activation if that was the question.

But, you will not be able to revert back to Vista Home Premium, you will have to reinstall it from scratch.

IMO, if you have Vista Home Premium, think twice before upgrading to Ultimate version:

Vista Home Edition probably is everything you need and it doesn't have the following features from Vista Ultimate:

Volume Shadow Copy

BitLocker (Drive Encryption)

Offline Folders

IIS Web Server


Fax and Scan

Ultimate extras, such as Dreamscene

See here:

If you really need the features I mentioned, then YES, you should upgrade :)
