Will this work?
Are you saying you have already purchased a FULL retail copy of Windows 7 Professional?
If so then I would have expected you have a new license key and you would reinstall from scratch irrespective of the old OEM system.
If it's a Retail upgrade package MS once advised me that you can upgrade easily but it will still be tied to your PC.
I'm probably as confused as you now given some other respondents are more experienced in this area.
