You should run whichever version you have a license to run. If he installed XP Pro and gave you the CD with the product key, great! If you do not have a valid XP Pro CD, but do own an XP Home CD with the certificate, perform a clean install by booting from the CD and delete old partitions when prompted. If you don't have the original driver disks that came with the computer, try the free WinDriver Backup Utility available on the web before installing XP Home.
Hi everybody, first I don't know to much about computers. a couple of months ago my hard drive die, and I lost everything. so this guy that work's in a telephone store said he fixed computers on the side and that he was putting up a sign saying computer repair also next week. He told me that he would put in the new hard drive for fifty buck. when I got it back it had windows xp pro on it, I did not ask him to do that I just wanted the hard drive put in, and my windows xp home edition that all. Thank you very much to whoever out there that can help me . PS I'm a newbie and I will never do that again.
