Upgrade from Windows Vista OEM?

I've heard a lot of conflicting reports on this, so I'd like a definitive answer.

I'm currently running an OEM version of Windows Vista Home Premium, and I've placed my pre-order for Windows 7 Home Premium. Will I be able to do a clean install of 7 from my OEM version of Windows? I've heard that it somehow is dedicated to the motherboard, which could cause some issues...I don't know.

Will this work fine?
