But there is something terribly amiss here. Where is the Vista DVD that you are basing this upgrade from? That is, let's say the hard disks fail and wipe out. Are you ready?
I have ordered the Upgrade version of Windows 7, due in October. I have also ordered a new SATA 750 GB Hard drive from Seagate. I presently use Vista Home Premium. My question is: Can I load an Upgrade version of Windows on a new hard drive? Can I load my Office XP and Expression Web2 upgrade versions on the empty hard drive? I know that Microsoft upgrade programs require conformation of ownership of a previous version. My thought is that I could keep my old hard drive installed under another letter, and when asked for proof of previous version, I could direct the Microsoft program to the old hard drive.
Is that what I would do? Do I have to fool with the BIOS with this SATA drive? What else would you suggest for a "clean" install?
