Yes it can - the windows 7 DVD has all versions on the one Disk.

One way is to make a universal DVD - you make an ISO from the DVD, then run the eicfg Utility through it Article here (http://www.mydigitallife.info/create-windows-7-universal-iso-with-all-editions-selection-on-install-with-ei-cfg-removal-utility/), reburn the altered ISO to DVD then when booting from the DVD select the options you want.


My laptop came with win 7 prof, but i brought win 7 ultimate for my desktop :confused: You still have to have a separate Product Key for each machine, meaning if you have ultimate on the desktop, you cant legally install it on the laptop as well with the same key, and the professional key wont work in ultimate.
