Yes- you can either clean install or upgrade from Vista but only clean install from XP.
Have a look at recent threads.

No.

You can only clean install with the 7E version which is available as preorder. The ability to upgrade will not be available until later perhaps December. At that point an upgrade will be possible from Vista but not from XP.
