Windows 7: force sysprep on clean installed that had a inplace install/re install

force sysprep on clean installed that had a inplace install/re install

I keep getting an error from sysprep that says you cannot sysprep on an upgraded computer.
i did an in place install since there where some problems with the operating system it fixed this.
Now i need to upgrade the motherboard and processor.

i tried looking for "hklm/system/setup/upgrade" which has been stated that removing this would allow it to continue but the key does not exist i tried to put it in and remove it and it still give same results(i figured as much).
so windows moved/ changed how they determine an upgrade/in place install.

How can i go about making it think it is a clean install to use sysprep?
