Upgrading WinXP to Win2K3

By joykiranr ·
Hi, I was trying out something on Win2K3. Somehow i got an idea to upgrade to Win2K3 from WinXP. But when i started the upgradation, i got an error popping out displaying "Upgrade is not supported".

Why it can not be upgraded?

Because you cannot upgrade WinXP to Win2K3

by Mehul Bhai In reply to Upgrading WinXP to Win2K3

As far as I know, this is so because WinXP is a Client Operating System and Win2K3 is a Server Operating System. You can upgrade WinXP to WinVista as they are both Client Operating Systems.

Why would you want to anyway?

What reason would there be to upgrade a workstation, with its workstation hardware, to become a server?

I went in to a garage and asked if my car could be upgraded to a Ferrari. They said would cost but I would need a new car.

I asked why can't I just upgrade the car I have and just throw the Ferrari engine in (my car).

Why can't I throw the Ferrari engine in my car?
