Ok, some people don't know which XP they have, suppose they put the wrong XPcd in at repair, is there a failsafe stop here or would it just ruin everything.

I will reask, as my English lets me down at times. If one puts in a XP home to repair an XP pro system, or XP pro to repair an XP home, what happens? Is it detected as the wrong CD by the system?

You might cause serious problems with your system.

What problem are you having with the computer and what brand and model is it?

Does it boot, because if it does you can get the system information from it by:

Click start/programs/accessories/system tools/system information.

If it won't start in normal mode try starting in safe mode by tapping the F8 key as soon as the system starts to boot and before the Windows screen comes on.

Actuall, the only thing that happens is that if you boot from the wrong XP cd, setup willask you to insert the correct one. No damage can be done to your ocmputer by inserting the wrong cd. The same thing will happen if you run setup in Windows. It will justtell you that setup cannot proceed with installing that version of Windows.
