Just want to ask if it's possible to install the Windows 7 Upgrade Version on a computer with Vista Starter OS? Will it install if i just Upgrade it? Or do i need to install it in clean installation? Thanks

I'm pretty certain that it'll force you to perform a clean install, but even if it doesn't you should do it that way anyway. A clean install w/ backed up data is much better than a messy upgrade installation.
