Vista to 7??

I have a laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium and I was wondering if its possible to upgrade to Windows 7 professional? Professional would help since I need to join my college's domain.. If its possible do I need to instal custom or just upgrade? Any help would be appreciated..

You will have to do a custom install I am afraid

That's the best way to go about it anyway, to be honest.

You can not upgrade to Windows 7 Professional if you have Home Premium..

You can do a Clean install from Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional..

If you only have the Windows 7 Professional Upgrade Disk you can still do a Clean install (HERE IS THE LINK) or if you have the Full version of Professional you can do a clean install..

Hope this Helps..
