    For a user, this is something very important to know that Windows Vista Home Premium cannot be upgraded to Windows 7 Professional. However, only three versions of Windows Vista are eligible, being Home Premium, Business and Ultimate. The upgrades to Windows 7 will correspond to the lateral version; so Home Premium will move to the new equivalent, Business will go to Professional, and Ultimate will be Ultimate. Upgrades from Windows Vista Home Basic are not part of the program, and there will be no option for users to upgrade to a higher-end version of Windows 7 through the free upgrade program. New computers sold with Windows XP also will not be supported. A user can choose to install a new copy of Windows 7 Professional instead, but this is different from an upgrade, and does not keep the users’ files, settings, and programs. Consequently, the user will need to reinstall any programs using the original installation discs or files. It is better to save the files before installing Windows and back them up to an external location such as a CD, DVD, or external hard drive. To install a new copy of Windows 7 Professional, click the Back button in the upper left-hand corner, and select “Custom (advanced)”.
