Hi all,

How and where can I get a WinXP installation disc? With SP3, etc.

I don't need the license (serial number, etc.), I have it... just an installation source on a CD.

Thanks in advance. :thumbup2:

Your friends...business/work...anyone with a MS Genuine XP CD and not recovery/restore disks can burn you a copy, which is of no value without a proper license.

To add - make sure that the versions match the sticker on your system.
If your licence says home you need a home cd, likewise for pro.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Thanks all.
