Reality check on upgrading my trusty Dell Latitude D820 (Win XP, 2GB) by adding a Crucial 128 GB SSD and upgrading to Win 7.

I've read Windows 7 installs without drama on a D820. Here's what I think is the drill: Pull off data. Wipe current hard drive. Replace with SSD. Install but not register copy of Win XP. Install and register my upgrade version of Win 7 HP/32. Install programs. Copy data over. Profit.
Am I forgetting anything?
