    I want to do a clean install of Lion from the GM. My free Lion is downloading now (purchased after June 6), and I have a Time Machine backup. I do have a couple of questions, though...and they're dumb so I apologize.

    1: Will doing a clean install of Lion ruin my Windows 7 partition?

    2: Will doing a complete restore from Time Machine restore all of my files?

    3 (ok there's 3): Should I even bother considering I have the GM anyway?

    Stick with your GM version.

    Since it appears that the GM and release version are the same, no, I'd leave it alone.

    Ok. Thanks! I redeemed the code anyway just to make sure.
