Windows 7 Upgrade versus Full Version

I preordered Windows 7 from NewEgg for $99. I thought I was ordering a full version, but in fact ordered an upgrade version. My intent is to run this in VMWare Fusion on a Mac. Do I need the full version in order to do this from scratch?

"Mmcglynn,

You are correct. If you no longer have XP installed on your machine or have installed a blank hard drive your upgrade to Windows 7 will not be able to be validated.

For additional assistance with the migration of Windows XP to Windows 7, please see this link.
