Clean install

I have a Toshiba Satellite A215-S4757 laptop and it originally came with Windows Vista Home Premium, but I upgraded to Windows 7 Home Premium. If I did a clean install, would this wipe out my upgrade to Windows 7?

I don't have a Windows 7 disc. I installed it through a download.

you can do a custom install instead and keep all files in a windows.old folder:

did you download an ISO image? or .exe file? I think you can burn this to a disc, but I dont have enough info yet on how to.

If you look at the Tutorial for Custom install, was this the way you were going to do the install you were planning?

I can't remember where I got it from. It was last fall and I got that promotional discount for students. Home Premium for $29.99
