I purchased an HP Pavillion in August with Vista. It was eligible for a free upgrade to Windows 7. I would prefer to do a clean install; I've never done one before.

The free upgrade package only has instructions on how to upgrade, but not how to do the clean install. It came with two CD's. One is the "HP Upgrade Assistant" which I am supposed to use first, and the "Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade Media" to use second.

Is there a way to use the upgrade CD to do a clean install, since I'm eligible for it? How would I do that?
