I have a Linksys Multi Media extender that I would like to "control" from a
laptop with Windows XP Pro Pack 3.
Can I updrade my XP pro to a MCE version?
If yes, can it be done:
A/ Without reformating the HDD
B/ Without migrating to Vista
Then, where can I find the patch or the updrage for that.

Thanks for your help

In that case should I go for XP media center 2005 or Vista home premium?

That depends on your hardware, if it supports Vista it's your choice.

If you can really go XP or Vista MCE is there really an advantage to
going vista??? I mean if your hardware can support both is there an
advantage to going vista over XP MCE????
And if so what is it???
