Windows 7: Student Upgrade from 32bit to 64bit and HP to Pro.

Student Upgrade from 32bit to 64bit and HP to Pro.

As the title suggests, that's what my situation is.

I have a second 1 terrabyte empty drive I want to install Windows 7 onto. Can I set up the new drive within Vista, do my Student Upgrade with the exe and choose to do a Clean install and have Windows 7 install (and activate) onto the new drive?

Secondly, I want to do this so I may move my critical program files from Vista to 7. Will doing a clean install on a separate drive still format the old drive?

Thanks for your help.

I have 2 internal Hard drives, a 500gb (Currently running Vista HP 32bit) and a brand new 1tb with absolutely nothing on it.

I want to

Do a clean install of my win741 Student Upgrade Windows 7 Pro 64bit to the 1tb drive from running the upgrade exe from Vista.

I want to do this without formatting the 500gb Vista in the process as I still have stuff I would like to move over. I know I could do this by partitioning the 1tb and moving over any files I have (about 250gigs of stuff (.iso(s), game files...ect) then not having to worry about the 500gb being formatted during the installation. Just doing that would require moving the files...twice instead of once with my desired method.
