What do you mean new updates? Home and pro have EXACTLY the same updates. I think you have been conned as unless you are on a big network there is no need for pro.

If you want to go ahead, you need to tell your PC to bot from the CD by pushing a key immediately at bootup (usually del or something) and changing the boot order


Yeah i agree. I think you have been conned. Depending what your using the computer for XP home should have been ample for you. You should be able to do updates as in windows update as long as you have an authentic serial key.
As for having to buy a reformat disk the XP disk should do this as long as its not an update disk.
Also if pressing del when starting up doesnt work try pressing F2.
Hope this helps, Nick
