Is clean install still working?

I have seen a lot on clean installs but all guides are from like 2009. Is clean install still a way to install windows 7 with upgrade disc on a new hdd?

Also if this is possible... since i have a hdd with vista on it and i have the licence how do i install 7 with the licence and a black hdd?

Hello Illway, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Yes, they still work. That is just the date that the tutorial was first created on, but all of our tutorials are constantly updated for any changes.

The tutorial link above can help show you step by step on how to do a clean install with a retail upgrade Windows 7 disc.

That would be the only con to a clean install.

Yes, you will need to reinstall all of your programs and drivers after doing a clean (format) install. You can usually get the drivers for your version (32/64 bit) of Windows 7 at the device manufacturer's website on their support/download page.

Here are the drivers for what you have listed above.
