My System Specs


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.
NEW (to me) Intel DQ67SW/I7 2600/12GB DDR3/ASUS CUII R9 290X 4GB/128GB SSD+750GB HDD/ASUS Xonar D1

Asusmobo/E8500/4GB DDR/Gigabyte HD 5830/Samsung 759GB/X-FI Xtreme Music

HTPC: Dell 960 SFF Q9550/8GB DDR2/R7 250 2GB/128GB SSD/2TB HDD
