Sorry pedroc , misunderstood the question, Can you not take the cd drive out your other PC, connect it to the HTPC and load the OS from there ?

No cos it being a htpc there are no other power connections but i done it know anyway. I popped the hdd in an enclosure and installed it on there. Then booted it up and rigt before it installed the drivers i shut the pc down and put the hdd back in. All up and running now
