    On the "Upgrade Paths from Previous Versions" page two "upgrade" paths are
    presented; "Requires clean install" and "Upgrade-in-place".

    If you want to install Vista Home Premium on a machine with XP Pro, you have
    to do the clean install. If your machine has XP Home then you can do an
    "install-in-place".

    Can you use the Vista Home Premium Upgrade disc when you have to do a
    "Requires clean install"?

    Or does the Home Premium Upgrade ONLY work when the chart says you can do an
    "Upgrade-in-place"?

    To see the chart:

    No. The upgrade works for both.
