Posting from Windows 7 Pro. Unfortunately, I do not have a workable CD key right now. After multiple calls to Microsoft, they confirmed my key was correct. I tried validating through Control Panel, but it kept giving me an error saying that an upgrade key can't be used for a clean install. I called Digital Rivers and they're sending me a new key.

Are we allowed to do a clean install of W7 with an upgrade key?
I thought upgrade keys checks if you had an previous windows install before it validates, unless you do it through the CMD method.

I am sure that if you bought the non upgrade of any Windows OS, you can do a clean install.
