XP media edition to XP pro upgrade RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to upgrade, or at least change my operating system to XP Pro for networking reasons.  Can I use the XP pro upgrade, or, do I have to purchase XP pro new and start from scratch (it is $100 more than the upgrade.)  Any other less expensive options?  Thanks,

  • Sorry, there is no supported upgrade path from Windows XP Media Edition to Windows XP Professional.  You would need to purchase a "Full Version" of Windows XP Professional and perform a "clean install".
