Re: Weird Windows problem
This is John, a support analyst at Dell headquarters.
I would guess that the reason your other disks are bluescreening is that specific SATA drivers are slip streamed into the installation media provided by Dell. Other versions of XP may require a floppy with the SATA/RAID drivers be introduced during installation by hitting F6 at the beginning of the installation.
Also, the other commenters are correct: Media Center is essentially XP Pro with a Media Center interface included, along with other device drivers for common media computer devices (IR Remote, etc.). There really isn't any reason I can think of a piece of software compatible with XP Pro wouldn't also operate on Media Center.
