Microsoft has created a handy chart that lists all the possible Windows 7 upgrade paths. Users of Windows XP or Windows Vista Starter will always have to do a clean install, only Windows Vista users who are upgrading to the corresponding Windows 7 edition of their present installation will be able to do an upgrade. European and Korean users will be required to do a clean install as well, as upgrade versions won't be available on those regions. Due to legal problems, Microsoft decided to remove certain applications like Internet Explorer and Windows Media Player from those editions.

|So much for the promise that once you installed 64 bit you'd never have to install it again... Way to go MS!|
Want to leave ultimate? only through a reinstall...
Guess I won't bother with Win 7, because I don't have time to bother with a reinstall. Good luck selling those upgrades MS.
