Vista Ultimate x64 to 7 x64 upgrade question

Hey peps, i am always over on vista forums as i have vista as my main OS, but here is my question.

i have 7 Enterprise X64 running in VMWARE runs great except it does not reconize my video card as it is running in a virtual enviroment.

i have vista ultimate X64, when 7 X64 ultimate or enterprise comes out retail wise, I can do a upgrade from vista ultimate X64 to 7 Ultimate or Enterprise X64? correct?
