Well, here's the thing about that.

XP Media edition is meant to be installed by OEMs and are meant to be installed on very specific machines

You could not even get OEM cds until very recently from places like Newegg.

They are not intended for upgrades, but fresh, complete installs

Now, I know that there was a developer edition that could update a previous XP install, but I do not know if that feature was transferred to the current install cds...I suspect not.

My guess is a typical Media Edition OEM CD must be a clean install, but I have no experience with trying it, since I don't care to sink $150 into software just to try
