can one install a newer version of xp pro on top of existing one without uninstalling original. Original isn`t registered, new one is bona fide. (Hasten to add not my pc)

I can't be certain, as it depends I think on how you do it but, I did what you're asking about about a year ago and although it worked ok as in the windows was ok it deleted bits and pieces of my programs leaving a lot of them on the hard drive but incomplete so they wouldn't run. So ended up formatting and reinstalling from scratch.
