I'm new to the forum, so I apologise if this has been asked before. Can Windows 7 Home Premium full version be used to do an in-place upgrade?
I have a new PC with Vista Home Premium that gives me a free upgrade to Windows 7 (but it will still cost 20 euros for p&p). Vista is pre-loaded and the recovery files are on a separate partition on one drive. Worse case scenario is the hard drive dies.
I will need the full version of Windows 7 to do a clean install on a new hard drive, but at the moment I would just like to upgrade.
All things considered, I'm thinking of buying the full version while it's half price but need to know if I can use that to just do an upgrade. Is that possible?
Thanks in advance.
