XP PRO installation - what disk? Asking for Disk 2

I am installing Windows XP Pro onto a Dell e510. I loaded the RAID drivers and proceeded with the installation. I entered in my Windows Product Key, loaded the network, and I am at the "approximately 39 minutes remaining" stage and I am being prompted for "Windows XP Professional CD2" disk. I don't have a Disk 2. What do I need to do here so I can complete the installation???

It is looking to copy files from folder "\cmpnents\mediactr\i386". The 1st file it is looking for is "mcdftreg"

(Disk 1 is "Windows XP Professional - Includes Service Pack 2"

Where did you get the XP Pro install disc from?
It looks like it's trying to load Media Center Edition, which does indeed have more than 1 cd.

I've had some Compaq desktops here at work that come with the XP pro restore CD, which is the OS.  Then at a point during the setup, it asks for disk 2, which contains OEM hardware drivers.  Check around your disks to see if you have something like that.

Is this a slipstreamed cd by any chance?
dbrenneckeAuthor Commented:
nope... straight from Microsoft. I googled that filename and found that this seems to be a common problem. I hit "cancel" and skipped the file. It proceeded and completed the installation. I will now wait to see what did not get installed and what may be broken!
KenneniahCommented:
Because there is no reason a Windows XP Pro installation should be asking for Media Center specific files unless it was a modified installation cd.
KenneniahCommented:
Hmm, straight from MS...strange. I have no idea at all then why it would be looking for Media Center files.
Most the things I've seen on the internet with that file error, were do to someone trying to slipstream SP2 into a MCE 2005 install (which already contains SP2). In your case....I unfortunately have no idea. Is the retailer you bought the cd from reputable? It looking for MCE files makes me wonder if it's a knockoff cd.

Got it straight from MS. I subscribe to their Action Pack program.... So I have about 200 CDs that have been delivered over the past 3 years!
KenneniahCommented:
Nice...makes me wonder if they are starting to add some MCE features into newer PRO install cds.
