I've discovered that WMCE will not support the driver to my newly- acquired M-Audio Uno usb midi interface. I've asked around and have come up with a solution that suits me as I don't care for Media Center anyway- I want to do computer music production/recording. Kill the WMCE os and install XP, which I can purchase online in a number of outlets. I need a walkthrough since I haven't any experience that deep. I can install basic things through the control panel, but when it comes to advanced things like that, I need help. Thanks so much. As usual, I feel like the big mooch because I don't have any good advice to offer anyone, but always need it! You all are the best! Blessings! eric
*chuckle, chuckle* Did I ever mention that I'm the one for whom they wrote all those "for dummies" books? I'd suppose I can find direction on how to format my hdd in my helps in the start menu tab, yes?
Hi, all: Forgive the time warp as I've been out of town attending to a relative's recent demise. Ambra: Many thanks. I'll give this a whirl most soon. Keep ya posted. Jollyjohn: Not sure the version as this is a fefurb'd gateway, possibly an '05, that I got this Spring from eBay with the OS already in it. (and no Office, can u imagine that?) I do know that I never booted up Media Center. M-Audio's FAQs state that WMCE doesn't support 3rd party drivers and my computer won't start the driver I downloaded for my M-Audio midi usb interface... Thanks and regards, eric
Okay, try this. On the main screen when the computer starts it lists music radio etc and settings, select settings, general, start up behaviour and untick "Start media center when windows starts" Reboot and you will be presented with that lovely default windows desktop!
All you need is Killdisk click here to clear the drive. You will need all the drivers for the computer hardware. Run killdisk to clear all the drive of partition info and everything on the drive. then start with XP CD in drive to set it up
