Freezing cold from me.

You CAN do a full, clean installation from scratch with the upgrade disc - it has the full version on it and is exactly the same disc as the one you receive in the upgrade version. You can boot your computer from the upgrade disc and do a full install from there. I did this the other week and confirm it works perfectly.

According to that article, yes.

I already had a genuine verison of Windows on my computer, as I expect 99% of PCs/Laptops do. It validated after three days (which is the default time setting for it to validate).

Wow, Microsoft really are ripping people off then aren't they!

Yes, of course it will work if you had a previous version of Windows on your computer.
You need the full version if installing on a new machine without an OS or if changing from Linux.


Not if you read the info properly, a clean install can be done with the upgrade disc.

"You may be surprised to discover that in Windows 7 there's no difference between the "upgrade" and "full" DVDs and — just as with XP and Vista — the cheaper upgrade version can indeed be used to perform a clean-install."

As simate states, no you shouldn't. In fact, thinking about it, when I installed Windows 7, I booted from the upgrade DVD and then then reformatted the hard-drive prior to installation. I assume this would have wiped any trace of my previous version of Windows.

It still validated as expected. I therefore see no reason why this wouldn't work on any machine.

Well his name is mumbojumbo :lol:

Having a quick look on some forums, apparently some people do encounter problems with a clean install from the upgrade disc (maybe I was fortunate to have no problems?).

Anyway, this site details a workaround: http://community.winsupersite.com/blogs/paul/archive/2009/10/23/clean-install-windows-7-with-upgrade-media-the-answer.aspx

My above post details how to install on a machine with no previous version of Windows.

Why the cold voters? Have you seen the full version cheaper? If so, tell us where.... This is the cheapest deal I've seen for a non-upgrade non-preorder version. If you have to resort to registry hacks etc. to use an upgrade version for something it's not licensed for you're just pirating the software anyhow. Why bother paying at all?

Heat and rep to OP from me. Thanks.

As soon as someone posts something PC related all the loons come out of the woodwork,
"I know someone who can do it for free"
"i could build it myself cheaper"
"i once bought the same thing but different"

Its a straight forward deal ,If you can find the same cheaper then post it,
If not how about Zip it .:whistling:

Fair enough on the price issue. I just think that Microsoft and a lot of retailers don't make it clear enough that, for those users that qualify (i.e. anyone with any previous genuine version of Windows) they can do a full, clean installation from the much cheaper upgrade disc. I think a lot of people are duped into buying the 'full' version.

My apologies to those of you that were already aware of this.
