I have MS WinXP Home installed on my machine.I also have a CD + Product Key for MS Windows XP Profesional.If I install the Pro version will it cause problems eg different drivers etc?
I am just a home user and wonder if the Pro version is meant more for business people.

There is really nothing in Pro that you need as a home user.

There would be no difference between the drivers for Home and Pro.

Remember if you go for the Pro edition, you will need to reinstall it afresh, including Windows updates & installed programs. Do a thorough backup of your data, music, photos, emails, etc before attempting it. The drivers - motherboard, graphics, peripherals, etc - will remain the same, but you will need to reinstall some/all of these again. G
