    I have a computer that has Windows MEdia Center Edition installed but I am nt exactly sure where the disc is (quite honestly, i dont even think it came with a disc.) so would it be possible for me to somehow burn windows onto a cd or dvd so that i could put it on a 2nd computer. Please reply, if you have any knowledge in this area, Thanks!!

    Technically its illegal for you to install the same copy of Windows MCE on 2 different machines. you only paid for one copy and installing it on 2 machines in MS eyes requires you to buy 2 copies.

    But anyway, yes you can make a bootable copy but I believe you need the original Win MCE disc (or you download a bootleg copy which should already be bootable. I wouldnt advise this method or condone it)
