Evaluation copy Build 2600; How do you..

Discussion in 'Windows Desktop Systems' started by body electric, Jun 25, 2002.

  1. I installed an evaluation copy of Windows XP on my PC back in April and it's 4 month expiration is almost up (yikes!) 2 things for you guys, I can reinstall XP PRO on top of the eval but, will it remember all the files and settings I had customized? Or will I have to start from scratch?

    or...psssst, come here around the corner I want to ask you something..>>>>>Can Evals be uh, un expired (hint,hint) and work as a working licensed copy?

    Email me privately regarding the last question if you got clues.

    I suggest doing a clean install of a LICENSED version of XP Pro. Make backups. format your hard drive, and install XP Pro again.
     
  3. I kind of wanted to be lazy and avoid that oh well...

    Do the required backup and try to do an upgrade installation... see what happens. If it works, cool... if not, oh well.
