I have found the following in my BOOT.ini file
"Windows XP Media Center Edition" which replaced the previous XP
Professional from the INI. It is creepy. I have a DELL 8100, Lastest
XP Service pack, and bunch of other stuff such as .NET framework etc.
One more thing, seems like some applications are not able to detect
this OPERATING System as XP Professional. I tried to RUN "Media
Library Management Wizard" from the "Windows Media Bonus Pack for
Windows XP" and it gives error saying "THe media Library Management
Wizard works with Windows Media Player for Windows XP only" but my
machine is a Windows XP Professional Machine....
