Please, someone else correct me if I am wrong, but it was my impression that all the DVD's are the same. It is the Key that determines, what you are entitled to.
Since it was determined, back in Oct, that with an upgrade DVD, you could format, just like the full retail, I would say to the poster that the option to format and upgrade is present. In fact, if you did not give your key during the installation process, but waited until the install was complete, there would be no difference between an upgrade and the full retail DVD.
