A custom installation erases everything on your hard drive. So you'll need to back up all your
files, photos, music, and settings on an external hard drive or on CDs or DVDs and then transfer
them back to your PC after you install Windows 7. You'll also need to reinstall all your programs
from their original installation disks. If you have Windows XP, you need to do a custom
installation. The difference between custom upgrade and clean installation is in license you buy
(Upgrade or Full license, respectively).

With an upgrade installation, Windows 7 will simply replace Windows Vista without affecting
anything else on your PC. You can do an upgrade installation from many editions of Windows
Vista depending on which edition of Windows 7 you want to install.
