Turning Windows XP Home Edition into Professional
Im wondering if anybody knows of a way to turn Windows XP Home Edition into a professional version? Currently I have an original Home Edition and the extra I386 folder files from professional to work from.
I should add that this is not for any illegal purposes or to be distributed. I am only curious about the real differences between HE an PRO.

I don't think you can turn it to XP Pro with that folder and Pro files.. there are stuff that Pro has, such as better networking capabilities and securities, I dunno the details.. but I think those stuff are in the coding of the XP software that's more spread around, and not from that folder.

Yes, you can "turn" WinXP Home into WinXP Pro. It lies in the registry. I can't tell you anymore.
