    There is no upgrade path to Media Center 2005, it is available in OEM only
    and will not perform an upgrade, you'd have to format and install fresh.

    Cool thanks for your help. So if I bought a new copy of XP Pro complete with
    Windows Media Centre and completely reinstalled that would be the only way
    forward?

    Well, you wouldn't want to buy XP Pro, you'd want to buy Windows Media
    Center 2005, and yes, a format and clean install is the route you'd need to
    take.
