Re: Upgrade -> Reinstall
Dave B. is right! You format the drive, use the upgrade DVD, BUT, when it
ask for the key, DO NOT ENTER IT! It will ask do you want to proceed without
entering the key, you say yes. Make 'activate once I've connected is
Once 'that' install is complete, do it again, BUT, this time, when it asks
for the key, enter it, and you can leave the 'activate once online' option
....that's the simple, cut down version of it...
