Windows 7 Ultimate 32-Bit, in-place upgrade, and licensing

On a computer with Windows 7 Ultimate 32-Bit and with no available restore disk or original Windows OS software, is it possible to perform an in-place upgrade with a different, legitimate, full version Windows 7 Ultimate 32-Bit disk?

Do you mean to re-install Windows 7 Ultimate 32-BIT with different media to the original?

You should be able to, it just wants a valid OS

If it is the full retail version of Win 7 Ultimate, then the answer is yes provided the key has not been previously used. The retail version will do both a clean install and an upgrade.
