I currently am running Windows 7 RC (Build 7100)
2 and want to make the jump to Windows 7. I was looking at the Windows 7 Home Premium Family pack and from what I understand it is identical to the Windows 7 Home Premium DVD, just with three licenses, correct?
Anyway, my computer came with Windows XP Home SP2, which I would assume is OEM, I have a Dell OS reinstallation disk, which, as far as I can tell is just the Windows XP CD with a different label, and that it doesn't ask for a CD-key.
Would I be able to perform a clean install with the Windows 7 Home Premium Family Pack media? Would it simply ask for (and accept) my OEM disk, or would I have to reinstall XP first before I perform the clean install (I read somewhere that the upgrade editions look for previous versions of Windows on your hard drive), or would it view my existing RC
2 install as a previous version?
Is this even possible?
