Change 2 Bytes and Windows XP Home becomes XP Professional
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 5/31/2005 08:15:00 PM.

Microsoft is not going to like this.

German Computer magazine C'T (Heise) is describing in its current print issue how to change Windows XP Home to a Windows XP Professional version before install.

The C'T magazine apparently found out that by changing 2 bytes in the installation file of Windows XP Home, it will install a Windows Professional.

Some functions are missing, but Remote Desktop and User management and enhanced security features are present.

How to do it? Its not on the magazine online website. You have to buy the magazine for that.

On similar lines ... I remember there was an application called tweakNT that can make the switch from one family member of Windows XP/2003 Server to another (at least it made the OS think it had switched).
