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 this true?

Legal but requires clean installation.

According to the MS web site at, 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.
