I recently had my hard drive fail with Windows Vista on it. Can I buy the upgrade version of Windows 7 and install it on a new hard drive? The computer is only 2 years old and is an HP Pavillion Model #a6230n. I don't think the computer came with a Windows Vista Disk....It does have the registration sticker on the case. Thanks for any help.

Thanks, I really just want to make sure that works. I have installed Windows Vista upgrade to a new hard drive, but somebody said Microsoft fixed this loop-hole? I don't want to buy it and it not work...
