Default Windows version problems

Over spring break I had purchased a new Dell, and recently I just formated the computer and reinstalled Windows using the Windows disc I got with the computer. The Windows installation dvd says Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 with Update Rollup 2, but when I finished installing it and went to system information it said I had Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition Version 2002 Service pack 2. Then when I go to xbox website to download 360 media center setup it says I have Windows Media Center 2005 with no rollup 2. Whats going on!? I know I had update rollup 2 to begin with because I have the previous 360 media center setup for update rollup which worked before I reformatted. Whats going on!? Whats my real version??

Nvm figured it out need to download a mess of updates through windows update but filesizes are too big to download via my dialup conection. Can I take my laptop to a hotspot and manually download them and stick them on my desktop?
