I got one of the PC's that was possible too get windows 7 through its company, However half the instructions page say that the Windows 7 will be a clean install and the other half is an upgrade. Any one have any clue what they will be sending? I'd imagine an upgrade disk, as it cuts costs...

Just an FYI. Since Win98 through Vista, upgrade disks have contained full versions capable of doing clean complete installs.

While I have not been able to verify it about Win7 I seriously doubt MS is issuing 2 separate types of disks this time either.

Really? Even with an upgrade disk, I can just clean install? D:

I can not say with 100% certainty regarding Win7. With previous versions in order to do a clean install with the upgrade disk you were asked for a previous Win version disk. I always keep a Win 98 disk handy for such occasions.
