What does Microsoft consider a "Previous Qualifying Version of Windows" that is needed to use the Win 7 upgrade disk?

If you cant burn to a CD/DVD, then you might be able to put it on a flash drive/USB key

USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create

otherwise, I dont know if you can do an upgrade path from Windows98.... if you are going to 64x then you definitely cant....you would need a clean install or upgrade from a vista64x biuld.

Do you have an ISO? where did you get the ISO, if it is from a vendor (OEM) then you might be able to request a DVD be sent to you....

No, you cannot upgrade that way.
