running on the PC. Everything including AV programs, utilities running in the background, etc. Everything you can. Disconnect from the Internet, unplug the NIC cable or turn wireless off, whichever.
The proper way is to do a full install from a CD boot and do a full format, convert to NTFS (if not already), and install. Hopefully the PC has the hardware to handle Media Center.
I recently bought a genuine copy of Windows XP MCE and decided on the upgrade over an existing HP Oem version using the setup from within Windows all proceeded fine til it got to the installing devices progress bar waited for over an hour before restarting once it resumed to the installing devices progress bar after another 10 minutes of waiting withdrew the setup cd and reinserted then progress went from nil to 2/5 of the progress bar then rebooted automatically the progress bar remained a nil for another 10 15 minutes tries removing and reinserting the setup CD a second time this time though nothing changed this time though when restarting had the systen boot it from the CD and was asked if I wanted to continue or quit the new installation chose to quit the setup from restarting but when Restarted just restarted the install process from where it left off
i need to know how to go thru with the install from where it continually stals out on installing devices or roll itself back to the older version
