    There is no difference between a Windows XP Pro disc and your Corp disc. The reason it is saying you the version on your computer is newer is because the version on your computer has all the latest service packs and the install disc does not. Either way, you are not going to benefit from what you are trying to do.

    I agree you will not "See" any difference. If you really really want to do this, then boot with your CD of choice and do a repair install. This will put it back at whatever sp level the disk is at ie sp1 or no service pack at all.

    In any case you are just making work for yourself and not accomplishing anything.
