Windows 7 Clean Install with Upgrade Media


Quick post here, since I only have minimal software installed at this point.

I have deleted my partitions, installed Windows 7 from a family pack upgrade disc without a key code, and then reinstalled over the top as an upgrade with the key code.  then I activated it successfully.  The I tested the activation by installing Microsoft Security Essentials.


This answers the big question of installing!

I also did a custom install on a machine running Windows 7 RC.  took the upgrade license key without any trouble.  later i will delete the windows.old folder.
