As you said the disc is full of bloatware etc.. & probabaly unrecogisible as a normal OEM MCE disc due to the manufacturer playing about with it.
As it's asking for a 2nd disc this a good sign. Just pop the 'CMPNENTS' file in with rest of your installation files.

Make a new folder named 'I386' & place these .CAB files inside.
Then make another folder called 'MEDIACTR' & place the 'I386' folder inside that.
Then make yet another folder called 'CMPNENTS' & place the 'MEDIACTR' folder inside that.
Now search your disc for:
Create a folder called 'I386' & put NETFX.CAB inside it.
Then make a folder called 'NETFX' & put the 'I386' folder inside that.
Now put the 'NETFX' folder inside the CMPNENTS' folder you created in the first part of this post.
Then, hopefully you should be in business!

What folders can you see in the recovery disk (Ex. \i386, etc), if its just a binary file your stuck.
I had that problem with a Compaq computer once.

I finally bit the bullet and bought a fresh MCE.
