Greetings to all of you, Thank you for stopping by my thread. Right off the bat, I would like to declare that I'm rather a newbie when it comes to playing around with formatting Windows XP. My Situation: My parents computer from 2005 has become very slow and unwilling to do things properly (HP Media Center PCm7170n, bought at FutureShop back then.) I then decided to format in order to 'clean it up'. The computer has a product key sticker for a Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, and from what I understand that means its OEM. So far, I have found that MCE '05 has an integrated 'CD' and I ran winnt32.exe. The setup went well and I am now able to access a very brute Windows XP. Unfortunately I seem to not be able to connect to the internet to update it. Thus, I am unsure if I did anything wrong and of what to do next. Background: I have a Pavilion dv6-3134ca laptop. The hard-drive died back in September of this year. I bought and successfully installed a new SSD. Why I am mentioning this: I used "Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River" (unable to provide a link due to being new on this forum) to install my Win7 on a USB drive and then successfully install it on my new SSD. Thus being said, I thought I would have the same ease with reinstalling MCE '05 on my parent's computer but it seems that it is a little bit more complicated than that. Question: I know that Microsoft doesn't like supporting anyone in anything... so, is there a way to get Windows XP MCE '05 properly reinstalled with all of its updates and what not (Service Packs, etc)? I am sorry for causing trouble and coming at you with a very novice skill set. I hope that someone will be able to help me with my problem. Thank you very much for reading and for your understanding.
