I Have two computers on the same network and I want to install XP Media center 2005 on computer 1 but I have all the setup file and everything in a folder on computer 2. So I want to install media center 2005 on computer 1 from computer 2 hardrive. How can I do this?

As it was installed on one PC, putting those files on any other PC will make it look for the configuration of the original PC, when it does not find it, it will not run

If you have a shared folder, copy, (not move in case anything goes wrong with the transfer), them to that, or use synctoy from my signature

It will work because you just copy the contents of the folder to the other PC and then run set up on there
