Windows 7: Fresh Install with an Upgrade Disk

Fresh Install with an Upgrade Disk

Is it possible to do a fresh installation from a Windows 7 Professional Upgrade disk? I pre-ordered it, not thinking that I would be upgrading from a Windows 7 Ultimate RC. I really want to be able to start fresh and stuff. Is this possible in anyway?
I do have a recovery disc from HP, but I *really* don't want all of their crapware on my computer. Using the recovery is the worst possible scenario in this situation
Thanks in advanced!
