XP Pro install over XP Home - wrong splash screen

  Tj_El 01:16 01 Oct 05


I had to re-install XP on my dual-boot system after a problem coupled with an error on my part at rectifying the problem. In so doing I decided to replace my XP Home install with XP Pro. Trouble is my splash screen now shows just "XP" - no "Home" or "Professional".

How can I rectify this?

Your help appreciated, as always.

If your XP Pro included SP2, the splash screen will just say "Windows XP".

Thanks for that smokingbeagle. I believe that settles the issue.

smokingbeagle is perfectly correct but, if you want to be absolutely certain to ease your mind, right click on My Computer, select Properties and the General tab will/should list XP Pro plus the version and Service Pack 2 as being installed.
