I'm not sure about your problem. If it would help, there is Hiren's Boot CD with a lot of included tools and a Mini XP version. You can boot this XP version from CD, but you cannot install it.


Self-built PC, Lian-Li PC-A70B, GA-EX38-DS5, Intel Core 2 Duo 3GHz, Leadtek 9600GT, Kingston 4GB DDR2, Enermax Galaxy 850W

Let me put it this way - XP is no longer supported and there is no official download source either.  I am sure if you search hard enough, you will find unofficial downloads somewhere or the other but there's no guarantee you wouldn't be downloading a virus instead of the real thing.

eBay.  I'm almost positive someone is willing to sell those disks.

Hi,

 

Often times computer repair shops have windows disks that they will give or sell cheap to people who just need the disk for boot/reinstall purposes when they already have the license key.
