Do you mean upgrade from home to pro, or dual boot home and pro?

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 :D

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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
