This box comes with 2 discs, 1 is a 32bit (aka x86) disc, the other disc is a 64bit disc (aka x64).
This is the FULL RETAIL package, you dont need any other previous version of your windows on to upgrade from, you can install it from a formatted harddrive.
It says the RRP is £150 however it will actually be around £90 as windows7 is around 10% cheaper than vista for each of the same versions.
The only non-business function you might miss is that it wont be able to run in XP mode for applications that wont work on Windows 7

Windows 7 Home Premium E FULL RETAIL - £150
Windows 7 Home Premium E OEM - APPROX £90
