Does the upgrade trick still work in Boot Camp?

I will be receiving my new Mac Mini tomorrow and will probably set it up over the long weekend. I'm going to install Windows 7 using Boot Camp as well (just in case I need it) and I was wondering if you can still "trick" the OS into thinking you are upgrading by installing the upgrade disc and then installing over the top of it again. I know this used to work in the past. Anyone had success with this recently? Not sure if MS has shut this down yet or not (though I don't see how they really could).

This is the official method supported by Microsoft; they aren't going to stop you from doing it (and yes, they could).
