Hi all, My laptop came installed with XP Home from Dell, I recently decided to upgrade to XP Pro, I installed it over top of Home edition and put in the correct serial but it wont except it and keeps counting down the number of days for activation. I was under the impression that XP Pro did not do that like Home edition. Should I just reformat and do a clean install?

I don't see why you should have to do a clean install (unless you want to). I'm not sure why you're unable to activate using the key you received with Pro but the activation wizard should provide you with the option of activating via phone.
