windows 7 cd disc states it's windows vista

So I got a Windows 7 64 bit upgrade and that is what it states in the disc. However when I upload it to the computer and using Virtual machine to install it the computer tells me it's a Windows Vista 64 bit. Ideas?

So...when you run the setup of the Disc it says it is Windows Vista?

LMAO...it appears that they sent you a Vista disc and not a 7 disc. Contact their customer support...explain the situation and I and sure they will send you the appropriate one
