I just want to say thanks for taking the time to read over my question!
Anyway, I just bought a Dell Dimension 8100(brand new) running ME. I installed a burner and a video card and FDISKed the HD, reinstalled ME and all of the drivers but now there's an "UNKNOWN DEVICE" in the Device Manager.
All of the peripherals are accounted for and drivers have been installed for them. Everytime I boot ME detects the "Unknown Device" and asks if i want to install drivers.
