Hi Diego.

I thought I remembered someone telling my brother, who also has XP and received no recovery disks when he bought his system, that there is an option right on his computer to create recovery disks. I couldn't remember, though, how to get there so I called him. Apparently, he has a life and didn't answer the phone. :thumbsup:
So I researched it for you. Let me know if the info was enough or not.

Take a look at www.bootdisk.com for some good ideas, especially the section called HOW TO GUIDES FOR WINDOWS XP.

When you say Recovery Disks what exactly do you mean? What type of computer is this? A Compaq, HP, Dell or something similiar?

Thanks TexasAngel67. I will check these out and let you know.

Thank you Leurgy. I also will check that site out. I have an HP and I assume the recovery disks are the back up disks for XP. (Copies of the XP program itself). In case I ever needed them to intall windows XP on my PC again.

diego88,

If you complain to HP they may send you recovery disks for your system.

Check out this link:HP Customers Furious

Or look at this item at PCtechbytes for how to
use the HP PC System Recovery.

Yes, they contain your registered copy of XP as well as all the drivers for your video, sound, lan card, modem printer etc.
