No sorry they are wrong, XP Professional is different license to XP home. You cant upgrade your license like that.

The CD key that is with your home version will not work on the professional version.

However, if your talking about just keeping the new PC and using it at home as it stands, or even reinstall XP Professional back to factory as EKSE is saying then this is fine as you are retaining the original licensing for the system, if the system has a XP OEM badge on it that is.

Ex-Government usually use corporate license keys and not OEM so check the system has XP license key sticker or you will not be able to install XP as it will request the key, and as mentioned your home edition one will not work.

If you are going to install the windows xp pro to your computer its like reseting it to factory defaults you have to install all the programs again.

but if you don't format the hard drive in the setup then your files will stay on the hard drive.

Tip

Upgrading Windows XP


Most users of Windows XP are using Windows XP service pack 2.
You can upgrade Windows XP service pack 2 by installing plain service pack 3.
This will upgrade and improve functionality to your current installation to Windows XP.
There are alot of versions of Windows XP Service pack 3 but i recommend downloading an official version from Microsoft's downloads center through the link below.

To after download is complete, install the file. Installation takes about 10 to 30 minutes depending on your system specifications.
If your current installation of Windows XP has too many errors, installation of service pack 3 may not be successful.
The solution to this is to reinstall your Operating System (OS) using your OS installation CD, then install Service pack 3.
How ever, OS re installation will erase all your data in your system partition so back up all your data.

To download an official copy of Windows XP service pack 3, follow this link:

Need a key for windows xp service pack 2


The Microsoft "Service Pack 2" is just a collection of program-updates and security-fixes for either the "original" Windows XP, or for Windows XP with Service Pack 1 already applied.

As such, it does _NOT_ require any "key".

Note that it's probable that Service Pack 2 will _NOT_ install on a "bootleg" version of Windows XP (original or SP1), because the SP2 update includes the Microsoft "Windows Genuine Advantage" update.
