Lost XP Pro CD

I have managed to lose my CD of XP Pro, but still have the product key (On a sticker attached to my Laptop)Is there any where I can buy just the CD and not key? Also will the new CD work with my Product Key? Or will have to buy both together?

Thanks in advance

The key will work with any copy of the XP Pro CD provided it is the same as the one you had, I think the difficulty will be in finding a copy. There were plenty around at one time - the trial versions as I remember.

Was yours full or OEM?

it was the full version (I think)

If you know someone with a full version you could borrow their CD, or speak with Microsoft. I`m sure others have lost their original disks and MS will have a copy - they may also try to sell you Vista!!
