Can I repair xp home with xp professional disc?
I know this is Windows 7 forums, but please help me anyway.
My xp computer wont boot, and I only have a windows professional disc, but the pc is home premium. I don't care about the OS, as I was planning to clean install xp today anyway. But if I restore home premium with professional, even if it messes the os up can I get my files?
I was thinking of simply clean installing but it wants to reformat my drive first. I would install my Windows 7 but it's so old, the advisor said it couldn't handle aero so I'll stick with XP there.
I have a backup cp but its years old so no point in using that.
