    Okay so I'm kinda new here :))

    So I'm kinda curious if it is possible to upgrade to Windows 7 from a USB Drive.

    I have a laptop currently using Windows Vista Home Premium - 32 bit and I wanted to upgrade to Windows 7 with the Windows 7 Home Premium - 32 bit ISO I downloaded. I can't use the DVD upgrade since my laptop's DVD Drive got broken, and since I saw that it's possible to install Windows 7 using a USB Drive, I decided to try it. But I keep seeing in the internet that this option can install Win 7 by using a "clean install". I still wanted to keep my files in the laptop so I wanted to do an Upgrade instead of a clean install. So I wanted to know if it is possible to UPGRADE to Windows 7 from a USB Drive instead of a clean install.

    Thanks :)
