when I cash in my voucher and get the windows7.Will i be able to upgrade over my vista ultimate or is it a wipe the disc and clean install or a choice of either.

be a pain to set the whole computer up again in a couple of months.

when the disc comes will there be a time limit on when I must install it?

The upgrade/clean install is all a bit 'up in the air' at the moment.

There will be no time limit as to when it can be installed.

all my prev upgrades I have always been start from clean hdd, but just completed a new build and have vista & my software set up nicely be a sham to wipe it all.

Run the Win 7 Upgrade Advisor ( click here ), it will show the options open to you.
