I am not sure if most people know this or not, but I would like to say that you can install basically all the microsofts operating systems, as LONG as they are on one single disc.. Last night i installed Windows Media Center Edition(I just prefer the mce gui over the original xp gui) and it worked fine.. mine is a official one dvd disc.. So if you want the mce look and you have it on one disc.. just plug it in and it should work fine, but just remember to have the serial number ready becuase you can't eject the disc.. thats also the reason why they ask that you to not use mce (usually comes in 2 discs)

just thought i tell you guys.. that is.. if you didnt already know...

If all you want is the Royale theme (the GUI theme in Media Center), all you have to do is download it: http://download.micr...DD9F/royale.zip That is the official version of it, straight from Microsoft's New Zealand branch (for some reason, it's not available on any of their other sites).


edit: that link appears to be broken now, but here is a mirror of it: http://www.softpedia...load-13027.html

you could try making an unattended install and loading the boot camp driver for the keyboard (with eject key) automatically during setup, and using it to install xp mce.
