Yes you can. there is no upgrade disc only upgrade serials. It seems you know about the workaround it works the same way.

But.... that would be a violation of Microsoft's EULA for the upgrade edition, which would constitute illegal activity, discussion of which is prohibited by our Forum Rules.

To the OP: Boot Camp requires a full version of Vista or XP. Upgrade editions are not supported by Apple or Microsoft.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
