I would like to upgrade a Vista Home Premium w/SP2 32 bit System to Windows 7 whatever.  I have DVD with Window 7 Professional Full version 32 bit w/SP1.

I want to perserve existing Programs, Files, Data & Settings.  

The DVD says it included Windows Anytime Upgrade [whatever that means]

When I loaded the DVD it said it could not upgrade but could do a custom install [clearing all programs, files, data, etc.]

I have DVD with VISTA Ultimate [both 32 & 64 bit versions]

How can I accomplish my goal?

Thanks for your help
