Format HD and reinstall XP but no XP disc !

  kclaing 13:58 26 Oct 08


I have a Tiny (who went bust in 2005) laptop which came with XP installed. I now want to format the HD and reinstall XP but can't find the disc.
Can anyone suggest how I get a copy of my XP - I have the sticker on the underneath with the product key.

Borrow an XP CD, if yours is Home you need to borrow a Home version, and reinstall using your product key.

Wow, as simple as that.

What dose it say on the sticker no doubt it will be an OEM.
I would find your original CD to save problems.
I have two OEM XP Disks and I have to use the correct CD for each PC for a repair.
Also a retail XP that can be re-used providing its not used in more than one PC.
