iam awaiting delivery of windows 7 upgrade edition i know this can be done in place but was wondering if it was worth formatting and reinstalling vista first

Install it on a formatted disk.

Do not install Vista first it is not necessary even with an upgrade version of windows 7.

Great that it worked out in the end.

There is definitely a way of installing the upgrade version without the old o/s but who cares now you've got it all working ok;-)
