Win xp home re register

my friend has win xp home and has bought xp pro
can i re register xp home to myself when the product registration kicks in or not?

thanx in advance

If your friend bought the full version (and not the upgrade from the home edition), you should be able to do so.

When he has requested a product activation twice already, you may have to call MS and explain them this story and they should (as far as I know) give you a product activation

Depends if the home edition came with the computer or is a seperate , and thus fully licensed product.

I would not call Mickeysoft to explain , because you’re not allowed to resell the license as far as i know.

you can explain that you bought a license for xp pro, and are transfering the xp home to another pc.
