    I got a hp media center 2005 upgrade dvd and when i installed it on my
    computer i've notice that C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386\ is empty and
    when i check my other computer with Window XP Pro
    C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386 is not empty it has files on it . can anyone
    here check if your C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386\lang is empty too
    when you upgraded to Media Center 2005?

    the DVD has Media Center 2005 and Window Service Pack 2 on it.

    It seems that the ServicePackFiles folder is created
    if you install SP2 over SP1. But since MCE 2005 includes
    SP2, that folder is not created (nor required) when you
    install MCE 2005. You can learn more here:


    I have one PC with XP Pro installed, that I updated
    with SP2. That PC has a C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles

    I have another PC with MCE 2005 installed (clean install),
    and that PC does not have a C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles

    So I don't think you have anything to worry about. :)
