Can anyone advise me where I can get a boot up disc for windows xp home edition.
My nephew's computer came pre loaded with xp home but there was no boot up / rescue disc in with the package and the shop that he bought his computer from has now closed down or could anyone e-mail me a copy that I could burn to disc and try on his computer?
Cheers

I have never used one.
I don't know if one made on another computer with xp home would work on his.

Here is a Microsoft link on a boot up floppy

Maybe someone else can offer better help.

As long as XP is intact BartPE will boot the coputer and allow you to run some basic fixes. You may have a corrupted MBR.
Here is one more that is handy to have around. Ultimate Boot CD

What you are asking here is just a bit illegal and is clasiffied as Hacking.

Description of the Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications application

Microsoft did introduce a program where they would replace a pirated copy of XP if it was unknowingly acquired and you will find the details of that offer at this link. I think the best thing for her to do is to contact Microsoft and they may be able to help her out.

You can obtain start disks from Microsoft

http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=310994

Get the one that is configured for youyr version and Svc pac

Tell us exactly what is happening because the boot disk may or may not be what you need.

Is the bios booting but not Windows?

Can you get to safe mode?
