Do you have to give some receipt number to download the ISO to burn? I have never heard of this.

Or are you talking about activating your already-installed Upgrade?

Where exactly are you in the Upgrade install process?

No, you upload a picture of your reciept of the windows vista and they will check it and send windows 7 free
