Can i go upgrade Vista Ultimate to 7 Enterprise?

I currently have Windows Vista Ultimate on my Sony Vaio laptop. My company offers 64 bit Windows 7 Enterprise for free but not Windows 7 Ultimate.

I don't know much about Enterprise but can I upgrade my OS with it? Or do I need to shell out the $$$ to buy Windows 7 Ultimate?

I assume that your company offers the full version. If so you can install it on your machine.

What version of Vista do you have at the moment 32 or 64 bit, is your machine capable of running 64 bit ?

If your machine can run the 64 bit why wouldn't you want to take the offer from your firm and have the Enterprise copy or is there something that you actually need that can only be found in Ultimate ?

I actually want to take my company up on the offer - just making sure I could do it since the only thing I could find online was that I could only go from Vista Ultimate to 7 Ultimate.

Thanks and will be doing the Enterprise install today
