I have this disc that I got a few months ago, it completely turns your system into Media Center Edition.

The ISO will be uploaded soon.

Instructions:

1. Put the disc in
2. Run the setup
3. Install .NET Framework (if not there already)
4. Install MCE 2005
5. Reboot with the CD in the drive (burnit if needed)
6. Let BartPE do its thing
7. Boot into XP
8. Install Pre-Rollup 2 Updates
9. Install Rollup 2 updates
(Optional): 10. Run the XBOX 360 Users setup

UPDATE: This requires XP Professional, if you use XP Home, it will not work, it will BSoD apon reboot from BartPE, and then you wont get the MCE 05.

Apologies,
WildEye

Don't worry. Most of us paid/downloaded extra when buying XP to get the Professional.

You can actually use a method of using the original files that allows you to install it on any XP/2003 SKU (and a guide for the Tablet PC components too). I can rewrite the guide at some point and post it, since the guide isn't written in great english.

Is this going on the offical server?

No. Microsoft Windows XP Professional and Media Center is still an active and retail product, so any tools aiding in cracking, hacking or unauthorized changing the product into another will not be distributed through this forum.

BETAArchive is a forum centered around betas, not warez. The Windows XP product line is considered to be warez.

Links to software aiding in cracking, hacking or modifying a retail product into another will also not be tolerated (read the rules, section 7).

Also, there's some registry hive on the install CD that you can edit in the Home Edition versions that will make it install Pro

I have that CD and it worked great for a few months, however if you download all the updates on Windows Update it will no longer detect TV tuners installed on that PC. I dont use it anymore but ive got a friend who’s still using it.

I have this as well and it does work, but you have to install updates manually. You have to extract the executable files and put the updates where they are supposed to go. The updates that are in the .ISO are the only ones that can be installed from the file. Other than this small problem, my installation runs great.

Am I allowed to upload it? If I am give me a day or two and I'll put it on the server and RS.

Uploading it to this server is NOT ALLOWED as mrpijey already said.

XP is still an active product and considered warez.

And this method does not work well on every version.
If you update you can reinstall your computer within 24 hours because it brakes your windows.
It still detects its as a professional version not tablet or media center.

And there are enough torrents (no i dont give) with those version that doent need this converter.

yes this is cool, but it is also pretty illegal, considering it includes the Plus! Pack for XP too.
