Upgrade or Full Version With new MB & Hard Drive
I am planing to upgrade my system, new MB , HD Video Card etc. I am currently running XP upgraded from Win 99 which I installed the last time I did a system upgrade. The question is will the upgrade version of Win 7 work on the upgrade version of Win XP
or do I need to get the full version of Win 7?
I don't think that's what the TechNet article means. You can't upgrade Windows XP to Windows 7, keeping your installed programs and settings. But you can install Windows XP, start Windows XP running, insert a Windows 7 upgrade DVD, and do a clean installation,
without having to get a full version DVD. See
