Yes it is. The tutorial in message 13 from Theog will tell you what you need since you have the Upgrade Win 7.

To go 100% safe, make an image of your Vista first. The instructions in the link work the sam for Vista as for /7. And once you have /7 installed, I also recommend to make periodic images. Else follow the advice of Greg.

Imaging with free Macrium

And download and burn the Macrium recovery CD from my Skydrive. It will save you a lot of time.

Use this program to burn the downloaded .iso to CD.
