Year 2009 is coming to an end and there’s no rest for the wicked. I will be installing Windows 7 upgrade on a Gateway PC. I just hate the fact Microsoft is imposing stupid upgrade policy with Windows 7.
I want to clean install Windows 7 on the computer, and yet there’s no simple way to do it with the upgrade media. Microsoft should let users clean install Windows after verifying upgrade eligibility.
Welcome to the Windows 7 bandwagon.
If you’re using older versions of Windows, the upgrade is worth the effort, but be prepared to spare some time to do it.
My upgrade took over 4 hours.
Did I regret it? Not one bit.Its awesome, especially Aero Snap, Jump Lists and Libraries.
Thanks for the comment. This is not my first Windows 7 install. I have installed numbers of different versions of Windows 7. This is the first with the media-less upgrade.
As I mention, there is no “easy” way to do clean install Windows 7 Upgrade. Microsoft should have let people clean install using the upgrade media. Microsoft still thinks that the customers are guilty of intent.
Oh by the way, you may not want to publish this but there is a way to perform a clean install with your upgrade license.
Check this out. The registry hack works.
