Full guide there, not particularly difficult, however why do you want to do this in the first place? That's my only question.

Thanks

I get your point, I really do, but if it's an adult learning center and they don't already have a domain, I doubt they are going to need it.

You can do it though, not sure about the cost of it.

Surely an adult learning centre will get an educational discount? They pay next to nothing for Windows licences?

Speak to a software distributor/reseller directly bud

or pay nothing and use Edu version :)

Adult learning centers can be for profit and may not qualify for discounts.  Typically, the upgrade costs $200.  I don't believe I've seen "upgrade" pricing.  Also, you CANNOT use volume licenses to upgrade because they REQUIRE Windows Pro to be pre-installed.  (If the machines came with Windows 7 Pro for example).
