    I have the choice of installing two different versions of XP when i reformat tomorrow. XP Pro Corp. English, or regular XP Pro English. Can someone please tell me what the difference between the two is?

    XP Pro Corporate edition needs no activation. Used for businesses where you have a lot of computers...

    If you can get your hand on the corp. edition, I would use that one...

    A "friend" of mine has two copies of the Corporate version.

    One copy won't boot from the CD.
    (So used a 98 boot disk - then type in setup - ERROR - This application can't run in Dos mode ? - Can't do that if you are doing a clean install with a newly formatted hard drive)

    2nd one
    Goes throught the installation procedure, but during the 'copying files to computer part' - It comes back with an error about 'Top of document problem' or something and won't continue.

    Solution was to use the 2nd disk to begin the install then use the 1st one to finish.

    He tells me that it now works great.

    Has anyone else ran into these types of problems?
    Feel free to send me a private message or email.

    Please Note-
    (I am only putting this out there to let people know about problems with using the corporate version, not to get yelled at for pirating.)

    Well, I am posting this now on windows XP corp which I installed a few hours ago. The installation went fine, it seems to be running great except for a video problem I'm ironing out which is unrelated to the OS.
