Upgrade XP Home Edition to XP Pro

I can think of a few things that you may run into:

Activation: You will need to activate XP Pro.

Updates: The installation of XP Pro will likely wipe out most if not all of the Windows updates that you have installed. (At a minimum, a few updates were different for Home and Pro.)

Personal settings: Some of your personal settings will revert back to system defaults.

Make sure that you have a good backup of your files, settings, and software licenses before starting the install.
While everything should go smoothly, why take any chances.
