    I have Vista Home and it won't let me install 7 Pro without doing a clean install... I just want to do an upgrade.

    Is there any option from Microsoft to download the Home version if you already purchased a higher version of 7?

    I did the student offer and downloaded it earlier today... just didn't realize i'd have to clean install if I was coming up from Windows Vista home...

    I don't have an external drive, though... so upgrade is pretty much the only choice i have without losing everything.
