The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)
A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)

I have Win7 on my current computer. I've got new computer parts that I'm assembling. When the new computer is ready, I will have to wipe my hard drives to setup RAID 0 so I can use my SSD for SRT cache, correct?
If this is the case, is it possible for me to copy my current OS to a back-up drive, then recover it to my main HD in the new computer? Or, am I screwed and MS eats up another $150 or whatever?
I have a variety of internal and external drives lying around. I only have an upgrade-to-Windows-7 disk, not an OEM installation DVD. My current/old computer had Windows Vista that I upgraded to 7.

<<It's also not possible to (legally) install an upgrade version of windows "cleanly".>>
That depends on what you mean by "cleanly."
You can do a clean install with any upgrade version of Windows (XP users must do a clean install if using upgrade version of Win 7).
If by "cleanly" you mean that you use just that one disk to install...no. Part of the mechanics for any upgrade version of Windows...checks the system for a qualifying eariler version installed or the disk for same. So a user can do a clean install with upgrade version...but system must either have earlier qualifying version of Windows where it can be detected...or have the installation disk for same ready for insertion when prompted during the install.
