    Hi.

    I'm am going to be installing XP Pro soon but in the future I will be upgrading it to Vista Home Premium. Is it possible to upgrade XP to Vista under Boot Camp? I heard you had to wipe and Install Home Premium from scratch if you had XP Pro?

    Thanks.

    Please don't bump threads - there's a rule against it.

    Also, if you search, you'll see this question has been answered many times, and recently.

    To answer your question, there doesn't seem to be an issue upgrading. ;)

    I don't see why you couldn't upgrade the bootcamp image. It's just another XP machine.

    XP Pro can't be upgraded to Vista Home Premium. XP Pro has to be upgraded to Vista Business or Ultimate. You can use the Home Premium upgrade disk to go from XP Pro to Home Premium, ut you have to do a fresh install. This is true for regular PCs as well as in Boot Camp.
