Ok, are you aware that those disks are Vista if they're the first you created...unless they do are 7 disks.

If you want Windows 7 you'll have no choice to follow the "Clean Install" Tutorial!

If you have the Recov Disks, then you can wipe the HD including the Recov partition, since everything will be restored to factory condition if you ever want to sell your computer but keep your Win7 upgrade for yourself.

Are there any questions about the steps given to wipe your HD and clean reinstall Win7 32 bit using your Upgrade DVD?
