The family pack will work no problem, I upgraded my Vista desktop and my laptop XP machines with the family pack without a problem. Just remember that everything will be lost on the XP machine, treat it as a clean install as smackheadz says, any personal stuff will have to be backed up.

I should have mentioned, the same Product Key is used for activation and the only difference between machines is the Product ID number.
