Install windows media center 2005 over win xp home

  JOJOROB 12:45 04 Nov 2004

Hi All
I have purchased a new Dell 8400 in the last 8 weeks with win Xp home edition, P4 3.4ghz, 1 GB memory,2 x 200gb sata mirrored drives, audigy 2,
DVD writer,
I am intrested in installing media center 2005 with tv card etc.
Would I be able to install over win xp without formatting drives and loosing all data and programes? M/c running fine at the moment.
Also what is the best tv tuner card to use?
Would I need to buy or install any software or additional hardware?
Thanks in advance Rob

if i were you i would speak to dell for compatability issues regarding h/w.

also as i understand it MCE will need a fresh installation as it runs off an xp pro platform not xp home.
