Windows 7 Family Pack

Hi,

If I buy the Windows 7 Family Pack can I do clean installs on the 3 computers (with no OS installed) via a documented workaround?

Thanks

Yes. You may not even have to use a workaround.

Would it still be a violation to upgrade XP to Win7 and then reinstall XP in a partition?

This would be on the same computer XP originally came on.

From what I heard, yes, the upgrade from XP to Win7 makes the previous install not valid anymore.

It doesn't make it "not valid" as in stop it from working, however the EULA states that you may not use the product upgraded from once Windows 7 has been installed. You no longer have a legal license, even though you may have a key.
