Re-install XP Home

Hi there.

I need to reinstall a “windows xp home machine”. I can see the license for “xp home” on a sticker on the computer. But, currently I can only find a “windows xp professional” cd.

Is it possible to install “windows xp home” edition with a “windows xp pro” cd?


Nope. The manufacturer likely put a quick restore image on the CD.

Like wwb 99 said, Microsoft have done something to prevent the XP Home Ed. to be reproduced like the ones in XP Pro
