"XP Pro SP3 2003"????


Uhhh, no such beast. You actually mean -


...Freestyle (the first release - to OEM's)

You'll have a fun time finding CD#2 then.

My laptop computer has Win XP Pro 2003 and MCE Media Center installed on it but I dont have the Media Disk CD2
To my knowledge Freestyle (has SP1) -


XRMSD2_EN  - MCE2002 CD#2

I have *some* of the CD's (including a Dell Restore) but

1 - You're being unclear of exactly *which* MCE version you have and

2 - You haven't said what your CD#1 Label is (see labels I gave above) and

3 - Nobody her van give you a copy of CD#2 or a link to one even if we knew which one and

4 - What do you mean by "workaround"? Media Center is a kind of "add-on" having nothing to do with the "base" XP Pro. Indeed, "Freestyle" CD#1 is *exacly* the same as XP Pro CD (note the CD label / Volume Name).


If you could tell us *what* problem you're having then *maybe* someone here could help?

Someday the tyrants will be unthroned... Jason "Jay" Chasteen; RIP, bro!
