    MCE 2005 is a complete operating system. It comprises Windows XP Professional (minus a couple of features) plus the actual MCE application. You can only install the whole.

    MCE isn't a seperate tool. So you need to buy or 'download' the complete package. Best thing to do is a complete format of your system.
