From Windows 7 Ultimate to Windows 8 Professional, there is a valid upgrade path but I would highly recommend you do a clean install rather than upgrade - it's much safer!

In step 7, format your drive before you continue. Make sure all of your data is backed up to an external hard drive first though!
