microsoftThis little, really little hack lets you convert your legitimate Windows XP Home into Windows XP Professional. Honestly speaking it doesn’t really convert it at all, but it just tricks Windows to think that it is a professional edition. As a matter of fact once you have applied the hack you won’t see many of the most common features available in XP Pro such as: Remote Desktop Server, Group Policy Editor etc. So why apply this hack? Honestly speaking I don’t know, but if you are looking for something original to do, here you are served!

  1. Click Start.
  2. On the Search Bar type: regedit and press Enter.
  3. Find this folder: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/ControlSet00X/Control/ProductOptions where ControlSet00X is the one with the highest number.
  4. Delete the ProductSuite registry key.
  5. Create a new key named Brand of type DWORD and set its value to “0”.
  6. Reboot the system
  7. After BIOS-screen, press F8 and choose Last Known Good Configuration and press Enter.
