    I'd do a clean install unless you have files and folders you need to save.. To start the upgrade process off again just repeat what you did in the first place (click install after placing DVD in drive and choose 'upgrade' when it's the time)..
    You could always do a clean install later when you've backed up but even microsoft now recommends doing a clean install whenever possible..

    You either have to boot fro dvd.. or usb to do a clean install... it's called Custom. It wipes out everything on the partition you install to.

    You can use a 4 gig usb memory stick.... instructions on my blog

    What form or 'media' do you have the files in?

    Thank you for your reply. I found my Microsoft account, re-downloaded, ignored warnings about firewall, programs that might not work, went well.

    Sorry to bother you with such a ninny problem.
