Is there any way to do an in-place upgrade from Windows 7 Ultimate to Windows 7 Enterprise? I get an error saying that there's a compatibility issue, but perhaps there's some way to modify the registry to bypass this restriction?

Thanks!

No, this scenario is not supported by Microsoft.

Here is Microsoft's official list of supported upgrades:

note: this would technically be a downgrade rather than an upgrade

I realize that. That's why I wanted to know if there was a way to bypass the restriction by modifying the registry. –  srunni May 15 '10 at 23:16
