Hello
Am thinking of upgrading my windows 7 home basic to another version, and would like to know if whether in doing so I will need to get a new license, and also how to proceed with the upgrade process?

Yes you will need to obtain a new license. You can pick up an upgrade version and upgrade your existing OS by dropping the disk in and following the prompts. Here is a break down of the difference between the three:

If you do not need XP mode, bitlocker, or to join a domain there really isn't a compelling reason to spend the money to upgrade that I can see.
