  • Have installed XP HOme on virtual drive and wish to upgrade to XP Professional. I have installed Service pack 3.  Does that make my drive have XP Professional status.  If not what do I need to do?

  • Installing Service Pack 3 on Windows XP Home Edition does not upgrade it to Windows XP Professional.  In order to upgrade to Windows XP Professional, you'll need to purchase a Windows XP Professional Upgrade license.  However, Windows XP has been retired and is no longer being sold.  Users are moving to Windows 7.
