Congrats ^*^ It will be interesting to know how that install/upgrade works. It's probably a full install OEM DVD that you'll get.

Looks like it. And just as I'm getting used to Vista. :lol:

I never even used the one I installed into a 2nd partition. Would the best thing to be to just remove it and then upgrade from Vista? Or should I leave it there and upgrade Vista to W7 and just keep the other instance of W7 where it is in the other partition?

If it was me :shocked:

I would format the W7 partition & use it for storage, backup my Vista files there, then format the Vista partition & do a "clean" Windows 7 install there.
The little guy, I'd dump that too & add the space to the storage partition before my backup.

Well I really don't need it for storage and backup. I have several external HDD's that I regularly use to backup the laptop.

I don't have a clean install option with this disc. It only allows you to upgrade from Vista.

There's also no way to dump that little guy. I already tried. The laptop is made so that you can't do that. It's for restore.
