A friends son is using a Microsoft 40 day XP o/s Evalution package with SP1, that is about due to cease anytime now. It is his intention to upgrade this to a fully purchased replacement.Would it be best to un-install the evaluation pack, and do a clean re-install with the new product. Or can it be adviced to just install over the existing pack.
His son is still at school, and if possible, he would like to consider a Microsoft XP Educational pack as the new replacement.Where can he obtain one of these from, with a students discount.
bvw-- Thanks for the link. Going further into this, it would appears as though a clean install would be best.Leaving the evaluation as a linking device, will possible cause future problems.The choice for my friend, is whether to go for XP Home or XP Pro, depending on the possibility of going via the EDU way.Trying to keep cost to the minimum.
