Hi :thumbsup:

I have read through this link and it says that it is for windows XP home edition and professional but it says it hasn't been tried out with windows XP media centre edition (which I forget to tell you I have). This method will more than likely still work with the media centre edition but does anyone know of another tutorial so as I can compare?

I just want to be sure before I go ahead and format and reinstall windows as I've never done it before.

:flowers:
