You must have a qualifying Windows operating system installed, such as Windows XP/ Vista, in order to install the Windows 7 Upgrade & register.

The Microsoft license is very specific. Many have felt your pain. I had to install & activate win-7 & then install & activate win-8 upgrade to do a "clean" install on my new rig. You get what you pay for with them, no shortcuts ,even though the upgrade IS the complete OS alone.
