Windows 7: Home Premium to Professional By Clean Install

Home Premium to Professional By Clean Install

I just purchased a new PC (two days ago) that came preloaded with Windows 7 Home Premium. I promptly purchased the "Home Premium to Professional" upgrade which is nothing more than a Key to be used with "Anytime Upgrade".

The new PC is also preloaded with quite a bit of junk that I would like to remove via a fresh install. What are my options? I have no install media, two keys (one Home Premium and one Professional Upgrade). What is my best course of action? (expert level computer user)

I should also state that the current state of the machine is 7 professional via the "Anytime Upgrade".

I greatly appreciate any assistance.

Without media your options are limited. I would look on microsoft, and google it. You might find a source.

Thanks, perhaps my post was not as clear as it should have been. I am wondering if I can install Professional and use the upgrade key. If I install professional do I need to provide both keys. Or should I just reinstall premium home then upgrade via "Anytime upgrade"?
