You can switch from Server Core or Minimal Server Interface to Full Server when one or more instances of SQL Server 2014 or SQL Server 2012 are installed. However, be aware that you cannot switch from Full Server to Minimal Server Interface or Server Core when one or more instances of SQL Server 2014 or SQL Server 2012 are installed.
To switch from Full Server to Minimal Server Interface or Server Core when one or more instances of SQL Server 2014 or SQL Server 2012 are installed, you must uninstall SQL Server 2014 or SQL Server 2012, switch modes, and then reinstall SQL Server 2014 or SQL Server 2012. However, you can turn on SQL Server 2014 or SQL Server 2012 installation prerequisites in Full Server mode, switch to Server Core mode, and then install SQL Server 2014 or SQL Server 2012.
Minimal Server is a Server Core installation that has Server Manager and other server tools installed. Therefore, the SQL Server Setup program performs the same installation steps in Windows Server 2012 R2 Minimal Server Interface mode and Windows Server 2012 Minimal Server Interface mode and Server Core mode. Additionally, you can switch between Server Core and Minimal Server when one or more instances of SQL Server 2014 or SQL Server 2012 are installed. This is a supported scenario.

Mainstream support for Windows XP ended on April 14, 2009, and extended support ended on April 8, 2014. Windows Embedded POSReady 2009, based on Windows XP Professional, received security updates until April 2019. After that, unofficial methods were made available to apply the updates to other editions of Windows XP. Still, Microsoft discouraged this practice, citing compatibility issues. However, over eight years from the end of life date (September 2022), the majority of PCs in some countries (such as Armenia) still appeared to be running on Windows XP. As of September 2022[update], globally, just 0.39% of Windows PCs and 0.1% of all devices across all platforms continued to run Windows XP.
To enable running software that targets or locks out specific versions of Windows, "Compatibility mode" was added. The feature allows pretending a selected earlier version of Windows to software, starting at Windows 95.
Windows XP was released in two major editions on launch: Home Edition and Professional Edition. Both editions were made available at retail as pre-loaded software on new computers and as boxed copies. Boxed copies were sold as "Upgrade" or "Full" licenses; the "Upgrade" versions were slightly cheaper, but require an existing version of Windows to install. The "Full" version can be installed on systems without an operating system or existing version of Windows. The two editions of XP were aimed at different markets: Home Edition is explicitly intended for consumer use and disables or removes certain advanced and enterprise-oriented features present on Professional, such as the ability to join a Windows domain, Internet Information Services, and Multilingual User Interface. Windows 98 or Me can be upgraded to either edition, but Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 can only be upgraded to Professional. Windows' software license agreement for pre-loaded licenses allows the software to be "returned" to the OEM for a refund if the user does not wish to use it. Despite the refusal of some manufacturers to honor the entitlement, it has been enforced by courts in some countries.
Two specialized variants of XP were introduced in 2002 for certain types of hardware, exclusively through OEM channels as pre-loaded software. Windows XP Media Center Edition was initially designed for high-end home theater PCs with TV tuners (marketed under the term "Media Center PC"), offering expanded multimedia functionality, an electronic program guide, and digital video recorder (DVR) support through the Windows Media Center application. Microsoft also unveiled Windows XP Tablet PC Edition, which contains additional pen input features, and is optimized for mobile devices meeting its Tablet PC specifications. Two different 64-bit editions of XP were made available. The first, Windows XP 64-Bit Edition, was intended for IA-64 (Itanium) systems; as IA-64 usage declined on workstations in favor of AMD's x86-64 architecture, the Itanium edition was discontinued in January 2005. A new 64-bit edition supporting the x86-64 architecture, called Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, was released in April of the same year. 1e1e36bf2d
