    I failed an upgrade, so I'm thinking of doing a clean install. I currently
    have XP Pro on my system and have a retail Vista Ultimate Upgrade DVD. What
    is the exact procedure to do a clean install with the uprade DVD? I only have
    one partition and want to wipe it clean for the clean install.
    Thanks,
    Tom

  2. Perform a "clean install" of Windows XP, then upgrade to Windows Vista.
