Upgrades can be problematic. Although this is a bit convoluted, the closest
to a clean install with an upgrade disk is the following:
1. Backup all your data.
2. Make sure you have all the executables and CDs/DVDs for your apps.
3. Delete partition/s on the HDD.
4. Do a barebones install XP (no drivers, apps, etc...).
5. Install Vista.
