    Are you doing an upgrade or something?

    Whenever changing to a new OS it's recommended to do a clean install. Format and start fresh.

    because you have old files and registry entries left over, it causes many problems in most cases as well.
    Best to start with a clean slate.

    Why do you want the SP2 Media Center Edition? Let us know why you want it so bad and we can find some good alternatives.

    And yes, plz put a better title next time.
