    Hi all,

    On lates today, xmas wind down in place so most of our users dont care if their pc's burn so i've got a bit of time to think about stuff.

    I have taken a practice test somewhere cant remember who the supplier was but it said something like what os's can you upgrade to xp pro with, it had all of the ususal suspects there but it had listed nt4 sp5 and I thought that it was a trick as far I know as nt4 sp6 that can be upgraded but not sp5, the test said I was wrong.

    Am I?

    oh yes, of course as with all things if you RTFM then all becomes clear, as its states in my book sat here on my desk you can upgrade from SP5 onwards!

    Silly me, must be the crimbo excitment getting to me.

    Of course in the real world, if you wanted to upgrade an NT4 box to XP, you would most likely quickly realise that the hardware was not compatible.

    ...or not worth the upgrade hassle. Always, always, always do a clean install whenever possible.
