I had this issue with 7057 to 7100. I ended up upgrading to 7077 first, then it would let me go to 7100. So I suspect that MS only alllows upgrades from "certain" build numbers. There may be an easier way, but you might be able to find an build that can upgrade 7127, and then 7600 may be able to upgrade that new build.

You have to do a clean install when moving to 7600, it's faster than an upgrade anyway. I have a partition with all my data, photos etc and the OS on the other. That way when you do clean install you just have to re run your software from the saved .exe files.

+1 but i'd highly advise re-install software as certain 'critical' registry keys may be missing. (a Registry - Backup and Restore may be handy in this case)

You can use Windows Easy Transfer - Transfer To & From Computers to save your user files & settings and re-instate on your fresh 7600

I think what they are saying is MS is purposfully not going to let you perform an upgrade. Are you looking for a hack? I did a hack to the registry to upgrade Windows Vista Enterprise to Windows 7 since it wouldn't let me do that either. I wonder if that could work in this case? Unfortunately I didn't write down the details.

Right click the setup.exe, choose vista compatability, and run as administrator. That should get you going.

(this has worked on previous builds when it wouldn't let you, I don't know if it works on ->7600)

Should I upgrade to 7600?
7232 is fine for me, but I'm a complete sucker for newer builds. I have a few Q's. 1. Are there any new tweaks/features, no matter how minor they are? If so, do tell! 2. Compared to 7232, is it faster/more stable? 3. I can activate 7600 instead of re-arming it and having it die out, right?
