    First, i want to partition my hard drive, then install visual studio 2003 and
    2005. Partitioning a drive, i think would require partition magic or any
    other software doing that.


    1. Can .NET 1.1 and .NET 2.0 be installed on MCE 2005, without a problem?

    2. How can i get media center image on my cd/dvd to install again on the
    computer, the existing software came with the desktop, and i do not have
    media center cd/dvd, in short how do i make mce2005 cd/dvd one from the
    existing installed software?

    Thanking you in advance for your replies.

  2. ..NET 1.1 and 2.0 can coexist on the same Media Center PC with no problems.

    As for the software, your manufacturer should provide you with some way to
    reinstall - that could either be a CD/DVD, or maybe a hidden partition on
    the hard disk. I do not know of a way to make an install disk from an
    existing system, unless the manufacturer gives you a way to do that (Dell
    does, for instance).

    If you buy a copy of Media Center, you can boot on that CD and at that point
    delete and repartition your hard disk (losing everything that was out
