My System Specs

Default

Windows MCE/XP requires an OEM cd to use the OEM COA. You cannot use a retail or enterprise CD to install OEM. Even then that COA may not work. Cut their losses, get Windows 7 as HP will only give you an install disk for $$$ and most likely for the same cost as a Windows 7 COA and install CD. Besides that, Windows 7 is far better than XP in every way, including media center functionality.
