Hey I have been trying to add my xbox 360 as an extender all day and it's driving me crazy!
The first time I tried it, it actually started installing and everything but it locked the computer up while installing. Now every time I try to install it says configuration error.

Here's What the event log looks like.

I Have tried clearing the xbox cache, deleting the certificates, leaving my home group, uninstalling the extender every thing I can find I have tried it just won't install now. I'm in serious need of help. The one thing that I have noticed it that when I open up media center and go to the extender tab it shows the xbox and some of the digits of the orginal key I used, even though I have tried like 10 keys. I am at a complete loss as of what to do now. Can some one please please give me a solution!!!!

Thanks in advance for any help I deeply appreciate it.

If you bought your 7 retail, you are entitled to MS excellent tech support, which can be worth more than the price of the OS.

If 7 came with your computer, your manufacturer provides tech support.
