The Question is how to find if XP Home, Pro or Media Center is installed from the Recovery Console. (No MS XP sticker is attached to the side of the PC BTW as it was changed to XP from Vista AFTER it left the factory).
Please go to
and reply there. My reason for posting here is that the Title at the link above is badly chosen. DOS has commands that might answer the questiion. But the Recovery console has a MORE LIMITED set of DOS commands with none that just give me the answer.
Also ONLY Respond on the Home, Pro or Media Center question. At the link I ALSO ask if SP2 or SP3 is installed but farther down in the thread I answer my own question regarding Service Pack level.
