Question about upgrading Vista > the E version

Hi guys

I currently am happily running Vista HP 64 and I'll upgrade to 7 once it comes out. The problem is, I have the Dutch version of Vista, so I'll have to upgrade to the Dutch version of 7. Now, as you all know, here in Europe we got this bull**** E version which doesn't give us the opportunity to do an upgrade install. I have my current Vista installation perfectly sorted out on a very powerful machine.

I have over 100 programs installed and everything, from the map structure on the disk to the start menu is perfectly neat. I don't feel like starting all over when I switch over to 7. And I really want to switch over to 7. I'm running it on my MSI Wind netbook since RC1 and I'm very impressed and happy with it.

Do you guys think there will be some clever hackers/tweakers that will be able to slipstream IE into the installation, so I still can do an upgrade install? How big are the chances of that. I was particularly looking forward to the upgrade install option because it went so smooth in tests.

Oh, and I'm not referring to illegal versions here. I will buy the original version. I'll probably get a discount since I work at a computer store.

hi and welcome to sevenforums. I know this is your first post but be careful we dont deal in links, cracks, hacks or anything illegal. Doing so will get you banned.
that being said legally you can upgrade to 7 and there is some discussion agt M$ allowing a choice screen instead of browserless.
Hope this helps

I think If you Download the RC Beta Windows 7, then you could install this and take a look at windows seven... I am getting the E edition TOO, so ...

Goto Internet explorer HOME PAGE and download it to a seperate drive.. also download the Microsoft Automated Installation KIT... With this you can CAN, Install the E edition when it comes and ADD internet explorer, to your IMAGE and Recapture IT... Saving it to the windows dvd appropratly... this will be for your OWN USE, NOT FOR REDISTRIBUTION.... TO BE STORED on a NETWORK SHARE or BACKUP DISK. (unless you buy multiple Liscenses- then it can be used on those liscence machines, you will have to change product CODE for EACH LICENCE)

I hope this will be ok for you...
I hope im not breaking any rules.... But this is the way microsft has it on technet.

Ah, very interesting. I'm happy that it's still possible. I'm sure I'll figure out how to create a disk with IE.

Or do you guys strongly recommend a clean install?
