The list of hardware supported by that version of Windows is very limited. At this point, it's best to buy a PC with the OS pre-installed. If you are going to purchase a copy and install it yourself, make sure you research the hardware. I can't find anything on the Microsoft site as far as listing compatable hardware devices. This link from Microsoft states that Media Center should only be purchased with a new PC: http://www.microsoft.../faq.mspx#EGAAA
Hope this helps.

Kinda interested in where you can get this as a separate install.. As per Microsoft..
"Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 is a new Windows XP operating system available only on Media Center personal computers. Because of its special hardware feature requirements, Media Center PCs running Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 are available only from Microsoft PC manufacturer partners."
This doesn't appear to be available as a stand-alone install OR a download so kinda interested in how you managed to install it??
