**Usually** You can do a full clean install with upgrade versions too. The just require you to insert the previous versions disk for verification. However as I havent used this feature on the W7 upgrade I cant say 100%.

not a true clean install then as you still need to old os disk, i had to buy the full versions as i built a new pc and my other pc was an acer pc which has xp with the infamous recovery disk rubbish which ofcourse didnt work

They must've changed it - I had a Vista Upgrade disk and all it required was fr me to insert my XP disk on install - didnt have to install it first.

yes, you do have to have an o/s on it...
i put xp on mine first , no drivers, or anything ...just the o/s
then installed the upgrade disc.
not 100% sure if it makes a note of the windows xp number or not.

But for anyone thinking of upgrading anyway...its the cheapest way to do it. It will go over xp, just says it has to install the upgrade from scratch. When you click ok, it goes through as if it were installing on a new machine, but checks for a windows o/s on the machine ( which it then renames windows old )

then why didnt you get hold of an OEM windows disc and use the number on the machine?
i do that all the time . Vista allows you to change the number once its installed.

you can do a fresh instal with this , if you look on the softare4students site it tells you how, still voted cold tho

am interested in getting windows 7 for my daughter who is at school. Her laptop has vista. Am i better reinstalling xp from scratch before loading W7? or is it ok to download onto vista? don't want any software on hard drive which is redundant

you'd be better off buying a full retail version of windows 7 rather than the upgrade version so you can wipe the hard drive and do a fresh install. i've not actually tried the upgrade route so i can't answer your question but thought i would offer my opinion anyway

ive done an upgrade on an xp machine...it tells you it cant upgrade and therefore it will do a fresh install of windows 7 . Your old xp is renamed to window old...It also warns you that once started you cant revert back to your old xp o/s ...unless you do it as a fresh install...
