Hi, I'm not even sure I'm allowed to be posting this but i Would like To Purchase A Windows XP Disk With License

My main reasons i'm here:

1. I prefer to use XP
2. I have had extreme trouble finding it.
3. This is a very helpful site and i think i can rely on this site to find out for me.

Oh by the way, if it helps, i'm in Australia.

Why do you specifically need XP Pro?
XP Home is half the price and to all intents and purposes is exactly the same.

XP Pro supply is drying up. XP Home is still available, though for how much longer isn't known.

Hi, so am I -
The last one I saw (apart from purchasing from M/soft) was on Ebay and included license also -
As mentioned above they are getting rarer, but the one I noted was about $60 or $70 (plus shipping) -
However after saying all that, I can not guarrantee that the product was 100% legal or that you would get a new copy of XP Pro -

Thank You -

The microsoft's webpage is www.microsoft.com
I've searched a bit on their website about windows xp prof but didn't find any. Maybe they withdrawned it..
I've found you some other places to buy win xp prof but it would be nice to compare prices from the ones you see on internet to the ones you see on shops. See what is fitting to you and buy it.
Here are the links:Link 1
Link 2

Windows worked fine before with the old motherboard. The motherboards involved are the same and equivalent. Windows Setup only recognizes a partition with the hard disk size and without naming an XP installation. It is an original retail version. I have read that you have to mail or call Microsoft for a new 44-key code in order to reactivate it. How is it done? Would I still be able to recover my data? Is there a workaround for the Windows Setup problem I have? Thank you very much.


Are you some spammer or something? You posted your problem and in another topic..

HI, i can't really wait for some slow internet shipping, and amazon, with the one day shipping is about $700 and i don't have that much money.
So can anyone in Australia, Victoria, near Melbourne please tell me a store i could go to that can provide me with one from 0$ - $200.
I would buy it off eBay... but i don't trust software from there and the shipping takes 12 days.

Windows XP ... was first released in August 2001.

Direct OEM and retail sales of Windows XP ceased on June 30, 2008.

Microsoft continued to sell Windows XP through their System Builders (smaller OEMs who sell assembled computers) program until January 31, 2009.[5][6]

XP may continue to be available as these sources run through their inventory or by purchasing Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows 7 Pro, Windows Vista Ultimate or Windows Vista Business, and then downgrading to Windows XP.[7][8]

I got a sealed in packet OEM copy of XP Pro a while back through Ebay. OEM is fine for me as I build my own anyway.
Took a while though had to work at it to get a copy.
