  • changing xp code from pro to home

    Hi
    On my PC there are 2 xp pro corp instalations without authentication (+Obuntu)
    I also have an Uninstalled xp home box whith its code
    I have bought a Vista UPGRADE dvd
    Is it possible to install the Vista instead of one of the xp's, using the home code for the xp authonticatin?
    ( what I mean is, not removing the pro instalation, iinstalling the home and only than installing vista)
    I hope I explained myself OK
    Thnks

    Pro won't take Home code and vice versa. Also, OEM CDs won't take retail keys, and vice versa.

    When all is said and done, what operating systems do you want the computer to have?

        Then format and pop in the Vista Upgrade CD. If it's like the XP Upgrade CD, then it should ask you for the CD and/or Key of a full XP install CD.

            Backup the data, and format the computer.
