Hi, I have recently bought Dell Laptop with Window 7 Home Basic (64bit) OS. I want to upgrade my OS to windows 7 home premium. 1. If I upgrade, will I loose the warranty from Dell? 2. How much does it cost in India? 3. How can I purchase the upgrade key from Dell? Thanks n regards, Sanjay Tank4/15/2011 | (Forums)
