But only have to activate once.
Installation takes 20 mins?

Also I am not even sure how much of the installation needs to be complete before the upgrade check will recognise a legitimate version.

You DO realise that you have to install it twice just to get a clean install, right?
Yeah but if that saves me £15 and I get the added bonus of being able to reinstall this when I get a new PC, I might as well put up that 30 mins of extra inconvenience :)

I got the Home Premium 'Academic' version from my University for 80$. It was the upgrade, not the full version, but I did not have to intall it twice to get a clean install.

I just put in the disk and I was able to format the drive and perform a Full / Clean install of Vista Home Preimium.

I think you only need to install twice when you don't have an OS on the disc to wipe. Which probably isn't that often!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
