H-P sent me a set of recovery disks for Vista Ultimate 64 bit and my machine has Vista Home Premium 64 bit on it; can I somehow install the Ultimate on its own partition leaving Home Premium where it is and having a dual boot then?

No, they sent me a new harddrive and the ultimate disk and it went riight in. I don't really need the home premium now, ultimate is a lot more appropriate for me. I was able to dual boot home premium and 7 when I got the 7 OS just after I first bought the machine, I made a partition and installed 7 there but I didn't like 7 at the time so I gave it away and removed the partition.

Thank you all for replying to assist me.
