Windows Media Center 2005 And SFC

Once that was done! Ever look?Similar to upgrading a standard SP2 install to SP3... "newer" files are in a different place.And now that I think about it, I believe your first post may be incomplete Any particular reason/need?Another reference -http://www.pctools.com/forum/showthread.php?54090-trouble-with-sfc-scannowAGAIN! In theory any XP or XP Pro disk with the same patch level should work, but maybe not. navigate to this website

There is also a free non Microsoft utility that can backup just the registry. Double click on the SourcePath key to open it. Also check the RAM and hard drive for possible problems. MCE has two i386 locations so something different will need to be done. https://forums.techguy.org/threads/windows-media-center-2005-and-sfc.685727/

First of all in my copy of MCE 2005 in the system properties lists the OS as MCE 2002, and in the system tools\system information applet it lists the OS as I set my Computer Management system event filter to log only Windows File Protection items.

  1. The client was having trouble installing an HP printer, so HP connected remotely to his system to try and fix the problem.
  2. Scroll down towards the bottom.
  3. Could someone have a look at the DDS and GMER logs for me and advise on the best way forward.
  4. It's been -extracted- (on my Dell OEM) and a special procedure used to install the sub-components.
  5. I am convinced its a corrupt install and the "give me XP Pro SP3" is a "false positive" and it wont eat anything. #13 NYJimbo, Nov 19, 2009 Bobbing Expand

My offer was questionable, may or may not work. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended. I know I am. Then I believe the 2004 and 2005 versions based themselves off of XP Home Edition.

The first CD is just XP Pro and the second is the MCE additional software.What version (2002, 2004, 2005?) and what is the disk source?The most recent machine I'm getting stuck Seems like thats what happens when you do a SP3 update on a Win XP system. Without that I can assist no longer.BTW, just "switching" between various versions / builds (CDvsDVD) won't do a lot of good. http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/155093-sfc-asks-for-win-xp-pro-cd2/ I'd rather fix the os with sfc and such cause its constintly in use durring the day and an os reinstall would wipe out all the files that might be needed

I do have a XP Pro SP3 VOLUME LICENSE CD but not sure if the fact its a "volume license" disk will affect it at all, as its just for SFC Hey guys I have a question that came to me as I'm getting ready to fix my friends dell pc Thread Tools Search this Thread 05-21-2011, 10:30 PM #1 Oh year, I played around with all of that including some file edits that MS recommended. #17 NYJimbo, Nov 20, 2009 topshelfpc Expand Collapse New Member Likes Received: 0 Location: If you are experiencing a similar issue, please ask a related question Suggested Solutions Title # Comments Views Activity Need a bootable CD to delete a Linux partition ... 9 142

These aren't Slipstreamers - they're Add-Ons/Add-On Creators.Universal Creator can also integrate Service Pack 3 inside XP MCE 2005. Assuming the right SP is included in the disc. I've tried various XP MCE discs as well as XP Pro discs and it rejects all of them. 0 Share this post Link to post Share on other sites myselfidem    Are you looking for the solution to your computer problem?

Its just so annoying that you cannot find alot of solid answers to what are prettu simple questions about all of this. useful reference There is an excellent article at: http://www.updatexp.com/scannow-sfc.html Which explains why you may be having problems. #4 topshelfpc, Nov 17, 2009 Last edited: Nov 17, 2009 NYJimbo Expand Collapse Well-Known Member I also couldn't find a MS KB article on it either. I still dont know for sure, however I have used an OEM disk on a RET machine many times, but that was in the past for Win95 and XP, not more

First copy the i386 folder from the CD/DVD to your hard drive if its not already there. The key word here is PROFESSIONAL not SP2 or HOME. there's a lot of info there.edit - or are you referring to installing SP3 on top of MCE2002? my review here Heres the actual key that must be changed: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Setup \ SourcePath.

Will sfc work using this disk to fix damaged or corrupted files on the pc? hope this help a bitClick to expand... So if the control panel says it's 2002 edition then that's probably why it's calling for XP Pro. get redirected here Thanks Dave .

Mine is an actual DVD with "special" COMMAND.TXT to add in those CAB files (Sonic, etc) -and- Emerald (Rollup 2).Again, Emerald is an odd bird. I have removed all bugs and nasties from this system, including entries discovered with Hi-Jack this.
