Hi guys

I am thinking of upgrading to windows Vista Home Premium Upgrade.

1 Can i do a clean install and pop my XP Pro OEM disc in when asked?

2 Will it clean install or is it an "overlay"

Thanks

"throw XP Disk in bin"

Don't do that as you are probably going to want it when you get exasperated with Vista ;0)
