have vista want to install windows 7 ultimate

Have a Toshiba A135-S4467 lap top, that according to the "adviser" windows 7 ultimate is compatible.
I downloaded a windows 7 program 32 bit, copied to a dvd, but when loading to the computer a message says
it must be compatible with Toshiba. Can anyone tell me how to get around the problem?
Note: My ultimate goal is to upgrade to windows 10, but there is no direct route to get there, from Vista.

When you purchased your Win 7 Ultimate Key it should have come with with the ISO to install ?

I did notice that model only came with 1 GB of RAM installed so You should get more RAM,

The "direct route" from Vista would have been to buy a Win 10 Pro license and just make a fresh install.

You may have to uninstall Toshiba proprietary software before doing the upgrade install.

Once you get that done, then clean install Windows 10.

Windows 10 will only activate if you`ve used a legitimate W7 key.

Let us know how that turns out.
