Why would that make a messy install should any issue arise.
If you are one that allows the "RESTORE" option to work, it is almost FOOL PROOF.
I for one as a BETA Tester, try to CRASH or screw things up, pure to test the RESTORE option.. in Windows 7 it can be optained via the DISK, or boot to DOS and use the Restore cmd via Cmd. One can also use many different 3rd party BACKUP programs with which they can RESTORE back to (when).
I am also one of the "Official" never clean install when beta testing. always upgrade, so far it is working perfect. I do also perform all the require general maintenance - regclean, trash clean, defrag, junk removal, temp file removal, all the normally required maintenance which 95% of the ppl never do.
