    hi. yeah it was windows xp media center edition 2005. i read that with OEM you need to reformat the HD, so that is what i did. it worked and activated. i wasnt finding the info i needed searching the net so i posted in here, but i ended up finding the info i needed after the fact.

    so thats cool

    thanks.
