Installing Windows 7 onto my newly built computer

I built a computer under the impression that I had the install disc for my Windows Vista so that I could update it to Windows 7. I was wrong.

With only the Windows 7 update disc do I have to waste my money to rebuy Vista and then upgrade? or is there another route I can use to install Windows 7 onto my new computer. What do you think Microsoft will say if I contact them?

  1. If you have a working Vista OS on your computer, then you will be able to upgrade to Win 7 with an upgrade disk.

    If you have a genuine Vista OS and a genuine Win 7 upgrade, it will wok. If not, definitely contact Microsoft.
