  • I have now discovered that xp media cannot be upgraded to xp pro full. Microsoft needs to make this more clear. I just spent a lot of money to find this out!

  • yes thats true that you can never upgrade from media center to xp pro.
    But the gud news is that u might be able to get the money for your xp pro upgrade disk back, which depends on several things (place from you boought this disk, date when u purchased it).
    You can call microsoft on their no. 1-800-MICROSOFT and then try to check wid them if u can get your money back. tell them the scenario and they will transfer you to concerned dept.
