I want to upgrade a notebook running Vista Ultimate 32-bit to Windows 7 32-bit. When I try to do so, the installation gets to the compatibility check and then tells me it cannot upgrade because I will lose my Ultimate Extras. There's no option to continue, just a Close button that rolls back the installation and returns me to my old desktop. The compatibility report lists no other incompatibilities on my system. I don't care about losing the "Extras", I just want to install Windows 7 and I'd really rather not perform a clean installation on this particular system. Has anyone else encountered this? Found a way around it? Thanks, Rose I found the answer for myself: I ran setup and this time told it not to check for online updates. After doing this, the installation went through smoothly.
