    Can the serial for XP Home be used for XP Pro?

    No.

    They are seperate SKU's and Home keys work on Home with Pro keys working only on Pro. Also, Media Center only works on Media Center

    No, it cannot be used for anything but the version it was designed for, that includes the type of distribution (Retail or OEM).

    Thanks. Just wondered. Atleast that saves me the trouble finding out at the time.
