How to upgrade from Windows 7 Home Premium to Professional ?

Any recommendation ? The Win7 Home Premium is good but need to upgrade to professional.
Is it possible to upgrade to Pro without loss ? Is it possible just by changing keys and registries ?

Thank you!

I don't think that you can make an Windows 7 Anytime Upgrade anymore.
Free upgrade to Windows 10 via Media creation tool is still possible in my country:

Upgrading from Home to Pro just via a new Key is possible, but you need the correct upgrade version of Windows 7 Pro that corresponds to what you have already installed. Just a windows 7 Pro Key won't work. For example if you have an OEM version of Windows 7 Home (which is very likely), you can't just enter a Windows 7 Pro Retail key as it won't accept it (at least as far as I know). Besides that it can get harder and harder to purchase good Windows 7 Licenses.

Windows 7 is officially middle-aged. It was publicly released more than six years ago, on October 22, 2009. With each passing day it is getting further and further from the midpoint of Microsoft's 10-year support lifecycle for Windows releases. You can see this link https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/15045/windows-anytime-upgrade-not-available. If the PC on which you want to install Windows 7 originally included a license for any version of Windows, you can buy a Windows 7 upgrade license from any vendor that has the software in stock and install that upgrade on your PC.
