I have Windows 7 Home Premium. I have purchased Windows8 Pro Upgrade. The blogs said that Windows 7 WILL upgrade to Win8 and KEEP all programs, settings and data. Very good.The first time I started the upgrade I was given the option to keep all software, settings and data. However I was asked to uninstall several programs. This I did. I then started the upgrade again. THIS time the upgrade made NO offer to keep old programs and files. Yhe ONLY option offered to me was to keep NOTHING. No explanation nothing. What happened? The upgrade was supposed to keep all programs and settings. But it is not giving the option to me, although it did the first time.
The-F-Word is correct – in order for an upgrade to successfully move your system from Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 8 Professional you would have to ensure the architecture for each version of Windows is identical. Example, you can only upgrade a 32-bit operating system to a 32-bit operating system; likewise, you can only upgrade a 64-bit operating system to a 64-bit operating system. As you can see in the Windows 8 Upgrade Paths library article from the Springboard Series for Windows 8 page on TechNet, cross-architecture installations are not supported.

From my perspective - your reply is disrespectful of the help given
So you can F*@k off (IMHO)
