Question about Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 for PC
When I boot, I receive two options - "Windows XP Media Center Edition" and "Microsoft Recovery Console" as my boot-up choices. Media Center is automatically selected, but it wastes three seconds of my boot-up time (and it matters).
Also reinstalling win from win should do the trick too.. dont do a clean install, just reinstall. It will keep your settings and the boot record will be rewritten.

The problem is you've probably taken your computer to the GeekSquad recently and they forgot to uninstall their diagnostics program (which they set to the default boot program, it changes the BCD or boot.ini depending on the OS). All you have to do is take it back to Best Buy and they should remove the program free of charge.
