Windows 7 OEM install says I can't do a direct upgrade. Says there is a procedure. What is the procedure?

The procedure is probably a clean setup not an upgrade. OEM copies can not be used to run an Upgrade. They are made for a clean system build on a new computer.

Here is the upgrade path to Win 7

If you have a system that IS upgradable to 7, you can get a Win 7 Upgrade disk which is cheaper than the full version. Although it's recommended you do a clean setup.
