Nlite made XP Media Center, XP PRO!


Recommended Posts

nlite made my media center image xp pro. Here's the deal,

I put my media center OEM cd in, put the files on the hard drive.

Load nlite, point it to my media center files, go through all the custom settings I want. Then i get the finished Image. When I use that image to install with, the PC says its XP Pro. I right click on my computer and it shows xp pro sp2!!

Anyone know whats causing this?

copy cd1 and cd2 to c:\xpcd

all contents of both, note it will be larger than 700mb (cd size)

select component removal, and choose the MCE Compatability option, remove some things so it'll fit (you can remove loads obviously)

make sure to use your MCE cd key in the unattended section, mce with an xp pro key only installs xp pro

AHHH! that must be the issue. I used the cd key's microsoft supplies for system builders to use as just to get past the install point. There list didnt have media center so i used the Pro key.

Is there a media center cd used to get through the install and later you can change it to the real key you need?
