    win7 ultimate to win8 upgrade error

    hello all,
    i get this error when i try to upgrade.....
    Windows 7 Ultimate cannot be upgraded to Windows Developer Preview. You can choose to install a new copy of Windows Developer Preview instead, but this is different from an upgrade, and does not keep your files, settings, and programs. You’ll need to reinstall any programs using the original installation discs or files. To save your files before installing Windows, back them up to an external location such as a CD, DVD, or external hard drive. To install a new copy of Windows Developer Preview, click the Back button in the upper left-hand corner, and select “Custom (advanced)”.

    There's no point in upgrading to an unfinished OS, try creating a new partition and do a clean install in that partition.
