Can I install XP pro on top of Home edition or is this a bad idea ?
Do you mean upgrade from home to pro, or dual boot home and pro?
Upgrade. Sorry should of been more clear.
Give it a go... the worst it will do is say you can't upgrade, then you'll know. Oh, and let us know too
Ok here we go...
Can't do it.
I know xp is finicky so I would do a clean install...tried to update from win2k had all kinda wierd problems...good rule of thumb for os upgrades not matter what manufact its from back your shit up reformat and start from a clean disk. might take longer but less of a headache in the long run.
I upgraded from XP home to XP pro without any problems.
my friend tried to up from home to pro but it got messed up so he removed it.
Works. Been running two days now. We will see.
