A co-worker gave me his non-working  XP HP widescreen laptop. When I turn the computer on I get a NTLDR is missing, Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart. The co-worker did not have the installation disks so I downloaded a Win XP ISO and created a recovery disk with ImgBurn. I changed the boot order to CD first and when I started the computer, it went thru the setup. I pressed R to repair using Recovery Console. The next screen asks which Windows installation would you like to log onto. The only one listed is 1: C:\Windows. I entered 1 and all I got was the C:\WINDOWS> (cursor)

That got me nowhere so I restarted again this time I pressed enter to set up Windows XP. It went thru the setup  and got the Setup cannot find the End User Licsensing Agreement (EULA). Setup cannot continue. Anyone have any other suggestions?

Hello nativetexan2,

 

So that we can see what type of disk you have created post a link to where you downloaded the ISO from please, Windows XP is/was not distributed online so there is no legitimate way to download Windows XP, even from Microsoft.

I will try and back track tomorrow from my work computer to determine which web page I downloaded the ISO from.
