I bought the Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade Family Pack and want to use it on a clean installation on my newly built computer and I don't want to do the double installation trick. I tried using these instructions . But when I went to make the registry changes I couldn't find "...Setup\OOBE" under the CurrentVersion directory. Anyone know how to fix this? I'm a novice regarding the directory so please be very explicit in your instructions. Or is there another way to do a clean install with Windows 7 upgrade. A lot of the instructions on how to do so on Google are obsolete as Microsoft has fixed some of the loopholes.

Add new key if it is missing.

Call Microsoft and tell them you have the key and having problems installing, have them do a walk-through install with you. That's the only best way I know.
