    I currently have Vista Ultimate. 64 bit
    Because of the change in features, I really only need the upgrade to WIN 7 Business, not the Ultimate.
    Does anyone know if this is possible?

    Im not really sure, maybe not. However, its really easy to use the upgrade media to perform a clean install.

    You would be better doing the pre order upgrade deal - if you are in the US- you can pre order 7 Premium upgrade for $49, or 7 Pro upgrade for $99.

    There is no pre order deal for the other Editions .

    You may find Pro is better than Business - and on that deal much, much cheaper.

    Which one is right for you?

    If you want to actually do an upgrade installation - I suspect you need the same Edition, i.e. 7 Ultimate.

    Of course I meant WIN 7 Professional, Not WIN 7 Business

    Sorry for the confusion!
    I mixed up my terms. Windows Vista Business = Windows 7 Professional. I am thinking of upgrading to WIN 7 Pro because of the discounted upgrade available. (In Canada WIN 7 Pro is $125.00) I do not need the multi-language or Bit-Locker features of the Ultimate version of WIN 7. I am intending to do a new install rather than just upgrade the OS.
    Thank You for your help.

    Hi Geena,

    7 Ultimate is not good value - it is just there for those few who feel they have to have everything - even if they won't be using the extra bits.

    MS priced it accordingly.

    Sadly, in Europe the pre order upgrade price for 7 Pro is near $160 US.

    A lot of people are annoyed about that. Pricing should be the same as US.
