1. Extract WindowsXPMediaCenter2005-KB900325-usa.exe file

2. Extract KB900325.exe (I assume 2k3sp1 or 2k3r2 will have all other updates or get update pack from the net so you'll need just this but you can do more if you want)

3. Set compatibility to Windows XP for KB900325\update\update.exe

4. open regedit and head to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Windows and set CSDVersion to 512 (200 in hexadecimal)

5. Copy custsat.dll from Program Files\Windows Media Player to Windows\eHome

6. Run KB900325\update\update.exe and set do not restart now

7. Extract april 2006 update (WindowsXPMediaCenter2005-KB914548-ENU.exe)

8. Set compatibility to Windows XP for WindowsXPMediaCenter2005-KB914548-ENU\update\update.exe

9. Run WindowsXPMediaCenter2005-KB914548-ENU\update\update.exe

10. Restart and viola :)

Thanks. That worked perfectly!!

I'm running Server 2003 SP1 thats been converted to XP 2003. I folled WBPluto's guide and installed MCE. I then installed the drivers (XP) for my Hauppauge 150 MCE and then plugged the Microsoft Infrared receiver (eHome Tranceiver).The problems i have are as follows:

1. Windows can't find a driver for the receiver

2. After installing Update rollup 2 and the april update, still no driver

3. MCE says that the drive for my tv tuner is malfunctioning etc.

Any help is appreciated :-)
