Win7 Professional Student upgrade from XP Home Premium?

My old computer has Windows xp home premium.

I bought the student upgrade to Win 7 Pro. I got the download and I paid for the DVD.

Shoud I wait for the DVD? Or will the download work okay? I don't care if it reformats my hard drive.

So long as the download is on another partition you should be ok

Do I have to create another partition? I'd really rather not. I was planning on doing the flash drive install or just a plain DVD install.....nothing fancy.
