Intel On a Windows Vista or Vindows 7 disk, all versions of the operating system are present, from Starter to Ultimate, and everything in between. So, if you want too upgrade to a more capable version of Windows down the road, all you need to do is pop the Windows disk in, let Windows Anytime Upgrade do its thing, and you're done. It seems like Intel is experimenting with a similar technology... For its processors.

This can be done 100% securely unless the master cryptographic key is leaked - intel already has all the components in place (cryptographic verification has been done for years for microcode updates, we've had unique per-CPU IDs with the Pentium3).
