    So I just got my HP Upgrade disks.

    I would like to do a clean install.


    Is the process posted here the same process when using the upgrade disks?

    the process is the same, make sure you select 'custom' while installing windows, use the upgrade dvd as the win7 dvd

    Update: Cleaned up the guide a little, made the instructions more clear (especially the activation and driver parts)

    gave this a try on my new laptop, but windows isnt activated after restoring my backup. i didnt enter a product key during install. when installation was done i restored my backup, but it still showed you have 30 days to activate windows. i tried to enter they key from the bottom of my laptop, but it says the key i typed is not valid for activation.

    what am i doing wrong here?

    nevermind...i think i got it. ran it from inside the windows folder and it activated

    Hi,
    If I ordered the "System Recovery DVD with Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit" with my system, do I still have to create the recovery disks, or is that what I have with the DVD?

    You do not need to create the recovery discs, those are the same as what you ordered
