Re: Seeking clarification on win7 install
If you have *retail upgrade* (I preordered mine) then the instructions on the box say that you must reformat if you are using XP. It actually tells you, you must do a *clean* install. If you are doing a clean install on a reformatted disk, then how would the upgrade know what was on there before? I did a custom install and reformatted my disk with Vista on it and it worked fine. Activation worked and everything runs as advertised. I think the problem with upgrading from a clean install is with those without a retail upgrade of Win 7.
