Just obtain windows7 Professional and it states it is an upgrade for windows vista. When I start the upgrade the program states that because I have vista home I cannot do a straight upgrade. The box does not say so.

Installing the Windows7 Professional as an upgrade I find I cannot do it from windows vista home as a straight upgrade. It must be a FULL CLEAN INSTALLATION.  The documentation does not say so.
