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.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
