    I would try upgrading from XP first, especially if it is a valid install. You will want to do a clean install, I assume.

    According to the word, you have to upgrade from a installed, valid version of the software. Does it have to be activated, I believe so, but not sure. I am fairly sure it will at least need the key entered.

    I also believe the prior OS will not be available for activation again.
