Two distinctly different questions:
1. If I now want XP Pro as my OS, do I have to uninstall XP Home Edition first, or will Pro just upgrade the OS?
2. Sony Vaio laptop, just reinstalled XP Home Edition >>to the partition of the drive where this all happens<< and left intact all the Sony proprietary/ backup software in that separate partition, right where the manufacturer put it originally. Well, I don't need it and would like to reclaim the drive space, and have Acronis Disk Director Suite at the ready. Should I just wipe that partition and then merge the resultant free space with the rest of the drive? (That's what I'd like to do!)
80GB drive, and 6+GB are for storing OS software and other junk that came with this Sony. Again, I don't need or want any of that, so is it safe to nuke it? ( I have XP in all versions, so don't need to install from this partition.)
