Discussion of hacking and warez is not allowed on Tech-Forums, so asking will only get you in a lot of trouble.

I can tell you that the media center edition is just XP Pro with the media center added on.

I don't know if there is a separate way to get the media center, but I haven't really seen the use of it myself.

I think it's a mix of home and pro because MC doens't like to network properly.

Actually Trotter is right. MCE is just XP Pro with the Media Center added in. I have not had any issues running it on any network. But i have had issue with running Home on my network.

There is 3rd party applications that you can get that will get you the Media Center add on. Just google for them. No reason to upgrade from Pro to MCE. Just use of those add ons.

media portal is free.

they have a bartpe cd that will let you convert a regular xp to mce. mce is xp pro except it can't join domains. But I can show you how to do that
