XP to XP professional - do I need to format HDD?

Me nephew spoke to me today.

For some reason he has bought XP professional. He currently has XP.

Can he just run the new one over the top or will he have to format the Hard Disk Drive please?

i think he'll have to format and reinstall from scratch since windows xp pro will not allow you to upgrade from home. i'll check and post back
