Windows 7 Upgrade Question

Tuesday, June 1, 2010 by PoSmedley | Discussion: Windows 7

I don't know if anyone else has done this. I have the Windows 7 Upgrade disks and have put off installing it. I would like to install it clean on a second hard drive. I have come across a few threads around the net that say it's possible, but there are no step by step instructions. I am afraid to run the disk for fear I cannot choose where it installs and it wipes out my main drive.

Has anyone attempted this and had any luck or instructions?

Po,

A quick google of " clean windows 7 install from upgrade dvd " yielded this for starters.

Several more sites are there as well.

Good luck

Just install your second drive and boot to your DVD.

When prompted as to where you want it to install, be sure to choose your new drive as the install path and your set.

I looked at that one and a few others. I get the idea. Just nervous I will get that far into it and it won't give me an option. I was hoping someone has done it already.
