I have a Gateway with AMD 64x2 and Media Center Edition 2005 that I bought for work. My work uses a domain and I need to join that domain. I have tried the long version by using the MCE disc that came with my desktop, but it doesn't let me get past the x:\i386\winnt32.exe/cmdcons. Is there anything I can do?
Thanks

Officially, Media Center Edition is basically XP Home in different colours and as such has no facility to connect to a domain.

But according to this:
http://www.tss2000.n...thread.php?t=50 - it can be done.

By the way, where it refers to "x:\i386...", x is the drive letter of your CD Unit, most likely drive D.

Thank you Neil. Actually, it is my e:\ drive. When I insert the cd that came with the Gateway that says it has my operating system on it, and type "e:\i386\winnt32.exe/cmdcons" I receive an error message saying the file does not exist.

Your cd that came with the Gateway might not be an original XP disc, what does it say on the disc?
