Win XP Media Centre Install Problems

  leedsafc 17:41 16 May 2007

Having installed hardwear into Elonex Artisan barebones system:
P4 650 cpu,
250 gb Sata hdd,
1gb ddr 400,
Sony dvd writer
Haupage nova 500 dual tuner
Asus 6200le graphics.
I installed MCE 2005 and patitioned about 50 gb for the OS all went well and booted into windows. However the IE icon showed no file association, I cannot get an internet connection even though i am on Broadband, when i clicked on to activate windows nothing happened eg no dialogue box and icon dissapears. When i looked into My computer i noticed that i had not formated the remaining 200gb so i installed again to format only to find that i had another copy of windows installed so now when i boot up i have to choose from two sytems. In an attept to reformat i now find i have three copies to choose from at start up. Things have now gone pear shaped and i want to start again from scratch with a clean HDD. In trying to solve the problem the system will not boot even in safe mode. Sorry for the protracted post but this is as brief as possible. Has anyone got any ideas before the system goes to ebay
