You can try a InPlace Install by following the directions here

As you have XP Pro it's possible that you have the Windows Encrypted File System in use if you do you need to backup the Encryption Key before you do anything or you will loose all your Data as without the Encryption Key it will be unreadable.


If you do a InPlace Install you will need to take ownership of your Files by following the directions here


Of course if you are using EFS you will need to mount the Encryption Key first but that is covered in the M$ Article on Backing up the Encryption Key.
