Upgrade Windows 7 Professional to Ultimate
I have Windows 7 Professional (64Bit) installed and attempted to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate (64Bit). My DVD has 32Bit and 64Bit. Clicking on 64Bit and going forward, I receivee a message saying that I can't upgrade to 32Bit from 64Bit and the installation (upgrade) stops. As stated, I clicked on 64Bit as previous edition.
What could be the issue?
Many thanks in advance.

The issue is that Win7 wants you to use Anytime Upgrade to upgrade within Win7.
There is a workaround which can be adapted to do an inplace Upgrade here: Upgrade the Windows 7 RC to any retail version Icrontic Tech
By changing the shown Registry keys to Ultimate exactly as shown, it tricks the installer into thinking you are doing a Repair Install (same version Upgrade over itself) which is allowed.
