Upgrading from XP-Home.SP2 to XP-Pro.SP2

Upgrading from XP-Home.SP2 to XP-Pro.SP2

Is it possible to upgrade (rather than re-install) from Home/SP2 to Pro/SP2?
I've got a license and CD but I get the message that the version on the PC is
older than the one on the CD.

Only if the version of XP Pro is also SP2 - which doesn't seem to be the
case here since you are getting that message.

Your options are to remove SP2 then do the upgrade then reinstall SP2,
or better yet slipstream SP2 into the XP Pro installation CD, then do
the upgrade. Links for ways to slipstream:
