I had XP Home on my system, which met with an untimely demise. I had a copy of XP Pro (not belonging to me), which I loaded to have a functional system, expecting to be able to get a (legal and brand new) copy of Home from a Microsoft employee friend. He nows says that he can't get XP any longer, that Microsoft is only letting him get Vista, which my system won't handle.
Sooooo... How do I (cheaply) get this turned into a legal copy? There are Home UPGRADE discs on ebay, but would that work with the Pro version I now have? I don't care if I have Pro or Home, I just want a legal, validated key, whatever! Help!
