quote .....This version of windows is not compaitlble with your system.

What version of Vista are you using in your failed attempt to upgrade to Win 7 Home Premium ?

Read this Upgrade Path, particularly the Supported Upgrade table......
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd772579(v=ws.10).aspx

Also, this note :
Upgrades to Windows 7 from the following operating systems are not supported:

  • Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Millennium Edition, Windows XP, Windows Vista® RTM, Windows Vista Starter, Windows 7 M3, Windows 7 Beta, Windows 7 RC, or Windows 7 IDS
....................................................................................................................................................................
P.S. What do you mean " unregistered windows 7 home priemum 64 bit iso " ?

Use this link for Win 7 SP1 ISO download......

Also, did you download the media refresh edition? Certain computers do not like the original SP-1 and need SP-1(U).
