    Can I run XP Pro upgrade on Windows 2000 or do I need to do a fresh XP Pro
    install?

    Thanks.

    If I'm not mistaken, it should work just fine upgrading from win2000.

    Win 2000 Pro to XP Pro is an approved upgrade path. It should upgrade
    without too much trouble just ensure that the computer has XP drivers for
    all of the installed devices and that you download and install them after
    the upgrade. If the upgrade fails for any reason then you can do a clean
    install and use the 2000 Pro disk as the qualifier.
