    Hi, i currently have the full files of window 7 ultimate on my laptop running window 7 homepremium and i want to install the window 7 ultimate to overide my home premium version. i have the following files for the setup.
    BOOT
    EFI
    SOURCES
    SUPPORT
    UPGRADE
    AUTORUN.INF
    BOOTMGR
    MEDIAMETA.XML
    SETUP.EXE

    My question is can i just click on the setup.exe to install the window 7 ultimate or must i create an iso from this file and burn to dvd, if i must create an iso is there a software to help me create it? thanks

    You can use a USB stick to boot from and install Win7 from USB stick. Here's how:
    I've used this guide successfully. Carefull about the letter asignment of the USB stick. ;)

    Today's motherboards have a key like ESC, F9, F10, F12 to show a boot menu device.
