Vista Question

By jeffrey.ho ·
I currently have Windows XP Professional. I purchased the Vista Home Premier Upgrade version. Not the full version, the upgrade version because it was way cheaper!

Can I upgrade XP Pro to Vista Home premier? I heard from someone that the only way to upgrade to Vista Home is if you have XP Home. They said I have to buy the upgrade to Vista Business or Ultimate...is this true?

Legal but requires clean installation.

According to the MS web site at http://tinyurl.com/2le7bp, you can upgrade from XP Pro to Home Premium, but you have to do a clean installation. This means Home Premium will erase your hard drive, then prompt you for your XP Pro CD to prove you have a version of Windows qualified to update.
