    Probably. I'm not much of a windows person. I have a mac and during the process you can ask if you can format or something, but you should back it up, just in case.

    Hm.... you bought the OS...

    I myself would dual-boot to XP.... Just until the compatibility kinks get rolled out.

    =| why would you not buy it?

    I did...

    It depends what you choose... if you upgrade from 2000 or XP then no... all your files will not be deleted, but instead moved to a folder called 'windows.old'... where you can rescue your media...

    (NB - backing up, onto another media, is always advised anyway...)

    If you choose new installation then all files will... be removed...

    =/ i upgraded for the hell of it... well... actually... it really like it... it's much faster and runs a lot smoother than XP in my opinion...

    I do have a DX10 GPU, so there's that too ^^

    Also i got it cheap... £60 (cheaper when you compare it to full/non-student version)... student discount rocks... (10% off the price at topman ^^)
