hi...noob here and this is my first time trying to customize my own cd...well here's my problem...i have windows media center sp2 but it doesnt come with an OS CD...when I bought my computer, it started right up without any cd and it asked me to backup 2 CD. One was a RECOVERY MEDIA KIT CD (contains applications for windows) and the other was SYSTEM RECOVERY CD. I am not sure which CD is the OS one but I assume its the RECOVERY MEDIA KIT, so when I started nLite and directed the "Windows installation" to the cd, a box shows up saying "Make sure the selected folder or drive contains 'i386'... but I do have a i386 folder on the cd...What's the deal?...sorry for the long description...thanks

hi RaVeWiThMe! i think i know which cds you are talking about ... :) your pc vendor in most likelihood did not send you anymore an OS cd since there is an image in your hdd for PC restore ... likewise, there is a utility to create those SRCDs (system recovery discs) that you can run from your system too ... i would suggest you call them & request for it (that is if you did not receive 1) :P

nothing came with my computer. I have a SONY VGC-RB50 with WINDOWS MEDIA CENTER 2005. I bought it brand new so there's no chance of the items being lost by a private seller. The only CD's I have is the backup cds. One is the SYSTEM RECOVERY and the other is RECOVERY MEDIA KIT. Anyone know a way around this? What if I download a cracked OS version of WINDOWS MEDIA CENTER of WINDOWS PRO with a working key? Will that work? Thanks
