1 Meg kudos for reaching a solution ...
I've tried the the floppie disk install, and it works only partially for me ...
It installs the complete windows enviroment, BUT .....
I have Windows Media Center Edition 2005 and funny enough: the boot disk makes my MCE dvd a standard XP pro disk!!! (the MCE specific parts aren't installed and the system info sais it a xp pro instead of mce)
I've searched all over the microsoft site, but it mentions this nowhere ... there are no boot floppies specific for MCE.
Anyone a clue ??
My system info:
- Intel 925xcv mainboard - (specs)
- Intel P4 550 (3.4 GHz.)
- 1024 Gb DDR2
- 1x 160Gb 7200rpm WD => Boot
- AHCI - Raid [stripe set]:
- 1 x 250Gb 7200rpm WD
- 1 x 250Gb 7200rpm Maxtor
- XFX Geforce 6600GT PCI-e

- on the first (boot) diskette rename the txtsetup.si_ (like txtsetup.si_.bak)
- locate the txtsetup.sif on your setup cd or dvd (in my case e:\i386\txtsetup.sif)
- open the command console (start -> run -> cmd)
- type the following command:
makecab e:\i386\txtsetup.sif a:\txtsetup.si_
offcourse: replace "e:\i386\" with the path to your txtsetup.sif
éh voilà ...

It was very simple.
Change the boot order.cd FIRST, floppy second and then raid.
I was struggling for 5 hours and i tried everything.nothing is wrong with the floppy nothing is wrong with the disk.
I just create a floppy from my motherboards cd (boot from motherboard cd) and when I changed the boot order bung! everything was in order.
I just pickup a notice from a dialog here which in first sounded ridiculous, but that was the solution.
Hope this helps. It certainly helped me... Thanks.
