    Hi,please help me to make a Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 boot disk.
    The cd wont boot.
    I can only do a clean insatll from hdd but when trying to delete drives it says it cant be deleted cuz it needs some files off it.
    I made a small partition and installed home on it and installed mce on the big one but if i delete the home partition system becomes unbootable.
    Any Help will be appreciated.
    I'm so desperate and i forgot to say that if home is installed and mce too it doesnt ask which one to boot.
    If i could make xp show "press any key to boot CD"i might bring it to work.
    I tried changing boot order cdrom/harddrive/harddrive and ill try some other but im sure it wont work.
    So what do i gotta do.

    Why not just type up an email with the information needed like you were going to send it to someone and then copy and paste it in here. That could work. Just like when you need help from others, they appreciate it when that help is returned.

    13. Click New.
    14. Browse to '\WindowsXPmce\CD 1' In The Column From Right And Highlight All The Files Inside The Folder 'CD 1' And Drag Them In The Column From Left.
    ***Note:*** You Can Copy The 'CD 2' On The Same Disc With 'CD 1' But Change To 'DVD-ROM (Boot)' Instead Of 'CD-ROM (Boot)'.
