PostSubject: How to join Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 to a Domain   Tue Sep 01, 2009 10:07 pm

If you wonder if Windows XP Media Center can been added to domain. No it can't it was before but Micrcosoft saw people were buying Windows Media Center cheap for company use instead of xp professional. Than they disable it. Can you upgrade WMC to Pro? no it can't because they are the same operation system.

But there a way to enable the the domain within Windows Media Center. There a single registry key that enable and disable this feature. Here the steps to re enable the compatibility.

•Insert any Windows XP CD.

•Boot to the CD and choose 'Recovery Console'

•Select the installation to log onto (default: 1) and press
Enter. (Most likely the administrator password will be blank. If
it is not enter the password you set or contact the manufacturer.)

•Type cd system32\config and press Enter.

•Type copy SYSTEM c:\ and press Enter.

•Type exit and press Enter.

•Boot the PC back into Windows

•Start > Run > Type: regedit and press Enter.

•Click on 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE'.

•File > Load Hive...

•Browse and select C:\SYSTEM

•Specify key name 'TEMP' and click OK.

•Expand: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > TEMP > WPA > MedCtrUpg

•Change the IsLegacyMCE value to 1 and click ok.(one, not an L)

•Click on TEMP subkey (under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE).

•File > Unload Hive. Confirm.

•Reboot the PC.

•Boot into the Recovery Console using the Windows CD again

•Select the installation to log onto (default: 1) and press
Enter.

•Type cd\ and press Enter.

•Type copy SYSTEM C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM and
press Enter.(Choose 'yes' to overwrite)

•Type del SYSTEM and press Enter.

•Type exit and press Enter.

•Boot up Windows.

•The 'Join Domain' option should no longer be grayed
out.
