Steve,
Thanks so much, I knew it would all work out and as soon as I mentioned the 3770k the tech said it was the bios needing an update and who's going to go buy a Sandy whatever to load and do the update ? So this works out real well for me !

Tell me about it. Now here's a good question, I have a W7 Home Premium upgrade 3 pack and also a currently used W7 Ultimate on my old AMD 8 core haha. There really isn't going to be any practical difference loading the Home Premium versus the additional work involved with loading the Ultimate on the new i7 rig and then removing and installing the Home premium on the AMD rig.
I'm now leaning on just taking the path of least resistance and loading the Home Premium on the i7 rig and calling it a day. One last point is these are upgrades put I also have a single W7 Home Premium that I used for my girlfriends system....I could use that disk and then just put in the upgrade key right?

That should work, but an update is supposed to only work with an activated W7. You can try this. Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version save you from 2 installs.

Edit: I don't think that will work. You can't upgrade HP to HP.

I have a valid XP product key so I should be ok for this upgrade. Then I have a lappy with Vista I can do the same later.

I think it was nice of MSI to fix you up, since they mislead you about compatibility.
