Default Re: O/T computer help desk thread

I just ordered a Dell laptop for my son's 30th birthday present, and it comes with Windows Vista Home Basic SP1 loaded. Dell would load it with XP Pro instead, but for $150 extra.


Can Windows XP Home Edition UPGRADE with SP2 be used to "retrograde" the system, or would a whole new Windows XP Home Edition with SP2 (non-upgrade version) be required to do that?

Thanks,
