  1. Best answer
    Yes, you can install the retail version over any version the OS. But why do you want to do that?
  2. You should be able to do an "anytime upgrade" for the cost difference. (Now in the Add Windows Features menu) This will replace your old key, and be a perpetual one machine at a time key.
  3. Cin19 has the correct answer. Why would you want to? There is no advantage to it.
  4. I just wanted to know, now that I do I can pass on that information to other people who need advice to,

    thanks for answering my question.
  5. But why would anyone else need to know this? There is no practical reason to do so.
