Upgrading from Vista Business to 7 Home Premium

When upgrading from a Dell Latitude D630 running Vista Business to Windows 7 Home Premium I run into an issue. It is telling me to upgrade using 7 Professional, 7 Ultimate, or 7 Enterprise or do a custom install which would be like do a full install but it would rename my windows folder to windows old and I would lose all my programs. I tried it that way but the hard drive is only 80 gb and the windows old folder is almost 20 gb, So I deleted the windows.old folder to give me more hard drive space. Now when I go to control panel and to add remove programs there isn't many programs there. How do I install the programs? I have the Dell Vista cd with the programs on it.
Thanks,
