    I was talking to a friend today and he told me that he tried to upgrade his Win 2000 PC to XP and it would not let him do it. Can this be true?

    I'm not positive, but i think Win2000 must be upgraded to WinXP Professional. Your friend might have tried to upgrade to WinXP Home edition.

    Just a thought...

    tlund_99 is referring to the Windows XP Home edition box.

    I had a feeling that it might be a home vs. Professional issue but I did not get that bit of information. I will find out and confirm.

    Well guyzs I did the 2k upgrade to XP Pro ...very smooth and pretty quick too. I decided to migrate an image using Drivecopy to a new drive and then just used PartitionMagic7 to convert it to NTFS...sweet.

    If you are having problems perhaps its the fact you are trying with the Home Ed.
