Default Re: Question regarding Windows Upgrade

you can only go from concurrent versions, meaning from ultimate 64 to ultimate 64, hp 32 to hp 32 etc...

so you are going to run into two issues, 1, 32/64 bit and diffrent versions. Upgrade process requires previous OS to be already installed.

but there is a simple workaround. Buy what ever version of Win7 you want. Install that version on your PC, clean install. When installer ask for CD-Key, don't enter it, on next screen choose the correct version. When installer is done, insert the DVD again and select upgrade. Then enter your CD-Key, and do the install process again.

That is the only way.
Windows 8 the next big failure, right after Windows ME
