mind uploading them on a server so that way i can install it awhile and when i get my key i can just plug it in?

so have yall confirmed that this is the full version and not just an upgrade? I was planning to originally order it from the microsoft store, but if this is the full version too, I might as well order from them instead. Thanks and let me know!

It is not the full version. Depending on your current OS, the install might either be a direct upgrade or a custom install. If it is a custom install then your hard drive gets wiped and then you get a clean install.

For example going from Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional will be a custom install requiring a wipe.

If you still have the disk to whatever OS you're running now, if you want a clean install, is reformating and doing a clean install of whatever OS you're on now. Then upgrade. It is time consuming, but hey for 29.99 you can't beat that.
