Yes, if you have Vista installed via Bootcamp, you can use a Win7 upgrade disc to upgrade to W7.

thank you, would i also be able to uninstall vista and then install windows 7 without the upgrade disc? i have a vista oem disc and plan on getting a windows 7 oem disc or is it worth just buying the upgrade disc?

Just get the upgrade version. It will save you some money as opposed to a new OEM disc. And it will do the same thing.
