If you don't have the disc and are going to reformat the drive how are you going to reinstall the operating system?

There several option to format a hard drive without a windows CD\DVD, but like dc3 pointed out how are you going to install windows once you have formated your hard drive? What brand and model computer do you have?

See the following Microsoft site for information about getting a replacement disk.

How to replace Microsoft software or hardware, order service packs and product upgrades, or replace product manuals

If you purchased your computer with the operating system already installed you should contact the manufacturer for a replacement set of recovery disks.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
