Me too. This is the big question. Can I install W7 Ultimate Upgrade and have it use my old key or DVD like XP used to do? Or do I have to install Vista then upgrade? I hate upgrades, I want to do a clean install.

I read all XP folks have to do a clean install, but you have to have XP installed and it installs in a new folder. WTF?
