Default Windows 7 install question - 11-03-2009, 02:14 PM

Hi there,

I'm going to be installing Windows 7 on my new Runcore 32GB SSD drive on Thursday. The Windows 7 disk is the Vista/XP upgrade edition, which I have already installed on my 8GB drive.

So, does this mean I'll have to install XP back onto the new drive before I can put Windows 7 on it...? Apparently, you can't do a clean install with Upgrade disks.

Any help/advice would be very much appreciated.
