W7 reinstallation After Anytime Upgrade...

I have a PC with W7 Home Premium 64bit.
I upgraded it to Ultimate through the Anywhere upgrade program, which gave me a new Key.

Now, I need to reinstall W7, and would prefer to install as fresh as possible.
Do I install from the Home Premium ISO or Ultimate ISO?
