Remember that Media Center is pretty picky about the hardware it will run on. Are the drivers that you have for the mobo MediaCenter specific, or XP/2000 drivers? You could be dealing with a problem where the drivers are enough for Windows to operate most of the board functions, but ACPI is completely unsupported with that version of Windows and the drivers you are using.Originally Posted by psyclobe
MCE is a pain in the arse as far as I'm concerned. The idea of turning Windows into a media-specific OS was a good idea, but implemented very haphazardly. Personally, I think you might be better off using XP (Home or Pro), and using LiteStep as the shell. That way you can download or create your own shell that does everything MCE does, without worrying about all the stupid hassles.
