    When I upgrade my pro to 64 will something wrong happen? Becuase I remember
    when you upgrade XP home to xp pro or xp pro to xp home something happens so
    just wondering if anything wrong will happen.

  2. Yes, something will happen -- you'll have a brand new operating system. You
    can't "upgrade" to x64 Edition, it's a fresh install only. You will lose
    access to all your programs until you re-install them. You have to use a
    special version of the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard. You need to
    format the hard drive it will be installed on.

    The 'special transfer wizzard' that Charlie refered to is part of XP64. I
    think you can get it from the XP64 CD so you can transfer out befor loosing
    XP32. Maby Charlie can help you with that.
