I have XP Pro now installed, i have a XP home cd if necessary, but can i just install home premium over pro or is that not even allowed by MS
thanks in advance
k ive been reading some stuff and it says i must do a clean install does that mean i have to buy the full version and not hte upgrade version?
All you need is the upgrade DVD. So long as your WinXP Pro install is legit, Vista Home Premium will install over it just fine. I just upgraded my laptop from WinXP Pro to Vista Home Premium using the upgrade route.
You can do a full install using the upgrade disc... you can even do a clean install using the upgrade disc... no need to install XP or anything else. Someone posted a link explaining how to do a clean install using the upgrade disc.
