  • need to upgrade new machine from xp home sp2 to xp pro

    need to upgrade new machine from xp home sp2 to xp pro.

    the version of xp pro I have is a corp edition with sp1 slipstreamed. when I try to upgrade, it complains that the version on the cd is older than the one on the machine and doesn't let me continue.

    I don't want to just wipe and reinstall because I'll loose the bundled software that came with the laptop - not to mention the hassle of tracking down all the drivers, etc.

    I was thinking I might load my copy of XP sp1 to a network or local drive, apply sp2 to that image, and then do the install. - but I'm having trouble finding instructions to make that work.

    suggestions? links that might be helpful?

    thanks,

    Richard

    Try using slipstream as the search query.
