I don't have any previous windows discs.



That's what I need for a clean install of Windows, right?

Just borrow one, don't you know anyone with a previous version of windows?

I mean, since you already have it you should try and find a windows disc, 98, ME, 95, anything.

Like I said, it'll be a better idea to actually buy the New install in case if the other guy loses the disc if he needs it or if the guy moves or something. I'd be better off a New install over upgrade.
