Cannot upgrade directly from Windows XP Pro to Windows 7 Release Candidate

Since the Windows 7 RC install program offered upgrade as an option when running from within Windows XP Pro, I was hopeful that I had heard wrong and it would actually upgrade directory from XP.  No such luck.

Since this laptop is only used for a single project and I have all those files backed up, I have decided to do a bare metal install after deleting my existing Windows XP partition.  Hold on baby, this could get exciting!
