Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64 Bit
I can't upgrade (repair)

Hi, I had problem with IE 9 RC. I posted it here but there is not solution !(I cant send mails from the Hotmail ).
I tried the Final version of IE9 ,but the problem didnt slove. I wanted to repair the Win7+sp1 (upgarde) but it showing me this message:
The following issues are preventing Windows from upgrading. Cancel the upgrade, complete each task, and then restart the upgrade to continue.

Your current version of Windows is more recent than the version you are trying to upgrade to. Windows cannot complete the upgrade.

Windows needs to be restarted so necessary changes to system files can be made before continuing.

Upgrading Windows will affect the following devices and/or programs:

These devices might not work properly after the upgrade. Before upgrading, we recommend updating the drivers for these devices. Cancel the upgrade, open Control Panel and search for "update device drivers", or go to the device manufacturer's website to search for updated drivers.

USB Virtualization: USB Virtualization Stub Driver

These programs might not work properly after the upgrade. We recommend uninstalling these programs before upgrading. Cancel the upgrade, open Control Panel, and search for "uninstall a program". (Note: Programs marked as * can be safely reinstalled after the upgrade.)

You'll need to slipstream SP1 into your DVD ISO to run a Repair Install now: Slipstream Windows 7 SP1 into a Installation DVD or ISO File - Windows 7 Forums

Update the driver shown, or uninstall it during Repair.

If you slipstream SP1 into the install ISO it will make it the same version as the installed Win7 so you can Repair Install. Isn't that what you wanted?

Plus you have the latest installer instead of having to do a year's worth of Updates or run SP1 after install. Why not?
