RC Upgrade to RTM Ultimate to Premium?

Alright, can someone please solve my headache so I can sleep lol.

I have on my laptop Windows 7 RC (Ultimate obv.), this was installed over Windows Vista Ultimate. Both x64. Now I have an 'upgrade' disk for windows 7 however it is for W7 Premium. I know the workaround for using the upgrade even though I'm running 7 RC.

The question is will I have a problem because the upgrade disk is for the premium version whereas I'm running ultimate?

Win7 Ultimate, x64
 
 

I didn't, but then again, I did a clean install. No fuss, no muss. Just booted from the disk, installed, Windows Update, then install the product key and activated.

So I should be right to go from Windows 7 RC to the Home Premium using the "upgrade" disk provided I do a clean install?
