    I am about to install W7 Pro on my 13 MBP. I have read the forums for the last hour using the search option. I found 3 threads stating not to use an upgrade disk. The upgrade disk along with my original XP full version is all I have. Am I going to run into problems installing without a full version copy of W7?

    I appreciate the help!:D

    If I read the post correctly you have a full version of xp and a upgrade of 7.
    In that case a upgrade disk will not work. You will need to either get a full version or install the xp and then "upgrade" to windows 7. If you upgrade 7 from xp windows 7 will completely erase all of your files etc from xp and install Windows 7.
