Hi Royboy,

If you do not have one you can borrow a friends Vista installation DVD,
then you can do a clean install with a Upgrade version of Vista. All
you will need to do is to enter the "Product Key" for your Vista. This
tutorial will show you how.

Hi Royboy,

Further to brink's post, can I refer you to my post 'Clean Install Windows
Vista Using Upgrade Media', also in this newsgroup (dated 9/21/2007) for
detailed instructions. Please note that you will need the Vista disk, so you
will either have to burn your downloaded version to DVD or borrow a copy.
Either way, use the product key that came with the downloaded version.
