New Motherboard - Upgrading Windows XP to Windows 7
I'm getting a new motherboard/cpu and I'm assuming I'll have to upgrade windows xp to windows 7 on my HDD. My question is what should the ordered process be for doing this? Should I install my motherboard (and everything else) first, then boot the CD from the bios settings and install windows 7? Or do I have to format my HDD and do a fresh windows 7 install.

format and do a clean install and make sure your bios on new mother bored is at the latest version!
That means I have to buy the full version instead of the upgrade version right? If so, is there an alternative?
read this you can use upgrade media for full install!
You have to do a clean install when going from Windows XP to Windows7. Although Microsoft doesn’t want you to do so you can use the upgrade media to install Windows 7 by following the link in the previous post.
