Our non-profit recently received a donation of a laptop with Windows 7 Pro pre-installed; however, I just received a donation from Microsoft on Office Professional Pro 2013 and found out that we need to upgrade to Windows 8. I was in the process of requesting the upgrade until I saw the "Wipe Clean" notification. Does that mean, I have to remove all the software already installed or just Windows 7?
