I am planning to upgrade to WinXP Pro soon but I seem to have run into a problem. I plan on upgrading as opposed to full install because I can purchase WinXP Pro Upgrade from school for $25 (full version not available unfortunately). So, to make sure that none of my software or hardware will create an problem in the upgrade, I ran Microsoft XP Upgrade Advisor. The Upgrade Advisor is telling me that my version of Win98 is not supported for upgrade. The exact message is as follows:

Blocking Issues

Unsupported Operating System Version
The version of Windows running is not supported. Setup can only upgrade
official releases. Setup will now exit.(the last part of course being the text message I would presumably receive if I were to attempt an upgrade)

See attachment for full Upgrade Advisor report.

For one I would like to know why Upgrade Advisor is telling me that Win98 on my machine is not supported. Could it be because I originally loaded Win95 and upgraded to Win98?

Also, I would like opinions on wether or not this will actually prevent me from upgrading. Especially if you have run into this problem.

Thanks for any advice.

That would be my guess that it will not upgrade an upgrade. That's what I thought when I read "official releases" in the log file.
