You cant install xp pro over xp home (or upgrade as it says),thats for older
windows os.With home installed,you need to boot to xp pro cd (enable this in
BIOS,priority boot device,or similiar),then at info screen when cd boots
up,select
install xp,new copy,delete the partition(xp home),create one,then xp will
do a
format on the drive and a clean installation of pro.
