Upgrading Over an Existing Operating System

If you're upgrading rather than performing a clean installation, the process is a bit different. Setup checks on the advisability of upgrading and asks a few more questions. This section provides a few points concerning the upgrade or dual-boot with preexisting operating systems.

The process of performing an upgrade install is much simpler than the clean installation process. Just be sure to select Upgrade instead of New Installation on the initial Windows Setup wizard. After accepting the License Agreement and providing the Product Key, you have little to do (refer to the previous section and perform the steps for doing a clean installation). You won't see all of the steps listed in the clean install, but you'll easily be able to follow your way through it catching the steps the setup wizard prompts you to respond to.
