Am I able to perform a reformat and clean install of Windows 7 home premium with a Windows 7 Upgrade version?  I have a copy of both WinXP and Vista.  Way back when WinXP came out, I was able to do a clean install with the WinXP upgrade.  During the install process, I simply had to insert my Win98 disk to show that I had a legitimate copy of a prior Windows OS.  Will the Windows 7 Upgrade version do the same, allowing me to perform a clean install?
