Hello everyone--
This is my first time on Geeks to Go! Was reading some posts, and the website seemed very helpful so I thought i would present my problem to the community. I seem to have LOST my windows XP PRO boot cd. Im not trying to pirate windows xp, i still have the KEY which i paid for. But my question is where can i find a dl to an XP PRO boot CD. I also use powerISO for burning.

THANKYOU for any feedback
Cameron

Howdy and welcome to CTH:

If your system is a branded computer (Dell, HP, Compaq, etc), contact the manufacturer for a replacement cd.

If it is a custom build and you used a retail version of XP, then contact XP and they will send you a replacement cd for a nominal cost if you can prove legitimacy of the original install (key code).

That is about all we can help you with here.

I have asked a similar question elsewhere, but did not get an answer, but is there any way to generate a restore disk from XP?

My brother recently bought a new laptop, and there were no disks with it. When he asked the retailer he was told that is how pre-installed systems tend to come these days!

Howdy Daz:

In the future, please do not hijack someone else's thread okay. Not kosher at all. :)

Systems are legally required to provide you with either a Recovery/Restore cd or the option to make your own through a program or hidden partition on the harddrive.

Sorry.

I was thinking that the same procedure may be a solution for this gentleman.

I humbly apologise.
