    Hi guys :D

    I just got a final version (The one that arrives on october 22nd) dvd with Windows 7 Ultimate, with both 32bit and 64bit..

    But my problem is that everytime i choose 64bit installation in the installation menu, and then choose upgrade, it compatibility checks my pc, and then it says that i cannot install, because its not the same architecture, even tho my pc is able to upgrade to the specified version!

    Well, i should be able to upgrade from vista ultimate x64 to 7 ultimate x64, without doing a clean install?

    If anyone knows how to solve this, please reply :)

    Oh yeah, my OS i windows ultimate 64bit...

    Thanks
    Jake :D

    Run setup while in Windows and you can.
