Are you guys sure that this is going to work in Windows 7? That seems like a pretty huge mistake on their part to allow an upgrade to be used on an unlicensed OS.
This is exactly what I did with Vista (I own an upgrade disc, even though I have XP, I like to do a clean install).

We haven't seen any information to contradict this process, so I guess it will work. I have pre-ordered Win 7 HP already as well.
