Are you booting up the cd on load or running it from within vista? To do an upgrade you need to run it from within vista.

Windows Vista Ultimate should have an upgrade feature. If upgrading is what you want to do, I would bring back or sell the Full Version, and get the upgrade version of Vista Ultimate.
