    Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 on Intel Mac

    Has anyone tried installing this version with either bootcamp or the Parallel's software. I was interested since a version of XP Media Center Edition can be bought at newegg.com for $109!

    I don't think that is using Boot Camp or Parallels software. Also I don't have access to a PC.

    but thank you

    You meant Apple, right? :-)

    They won't help you. Boot Camp is beta and Windows is not Apple's OS.

    the only problem is Windows Media Center Edition comes on 2 cd's, so anyone trying to install it using one cd is using a pirated copy...

    "Pirated" is such a harsh word.....

    Here is what I am thinking:

    Intel Mac Mini
    Tiger
    Front Row for a front end on the Mac side
    bootcamp
    XP Media Center Ed.
    Frodoplayer or Centrafuge for a front end on the windows side



    Any suggestions?

    Thats bs why dont you read the instructions posted in the link above. You use your 2 cd copy of media center and copy all the files onto the harddrive and make it into 1 bootable cd, thus it is not pirated. Yesh.
