Re: Upgraded from XP problems
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.
