Just out of curiousity...

Just as the title says, just out of curiousity, I have a laptop running XP Home and a desktop running XP Pro. Would it be possible to do a repair installation on the XP Home machine using a slipstreamed XP Pro CD, thus converting the XP Home to XP Pro SP1?

Also, if I did a repair installation on the XP Home machine w/ a slipstreamed XP home CD, would that upgrade it to SP1? Or would I have to download SP1 again?

Sounds like a recipe for distaster! :)
Ok, never tried the home-pro repair myself as well. Since the repair installation is practically the same as an inplace upgrade installation you probably end up with a not activated installation of XP pro.

If you have a non ServicePack installation of XP Home and do a repair installation from a slipstreamed cd, this will indeed apply the Service Pack. Will look like and in fact be a slipstreamed installation (i.e. no Windows\ServicePackFiles directory). If I remember right I have done this once, no guarantee, 'though.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
