Hi,
If you want to get it legally, then go to a store and get it.
If you want to get it illegally, then download some torrent file and burn it in a CD. make it a bootable CD. but you cannot be assured that you will get the product key in all the torrents. try various torrents and get the right one.

Just go to HP.com, and get the Restoration Disk. Just that simple.
(Plus a whole lot cheaper than buying the full version installation disk,
{$95}, and MUCH safer than a torrent!)

You need the Restoration Disk for YOUR computer. Here is
HP.com/Support,
http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html

Up to the left you will see -> Contact HP
Click on this. On this page go down to the heading, Call HP,
and click on -> Technical support after you buy.

The phone number you want is 800-474-6836
It's a toll free number, and 24 hrs a day. (I would try to call during
normal business hours though. 9am to 5pm)
Talk to tech support, and tell them you need the Restoration Disk
for your computer. You need the serial number to give to them, so
they will send THE disk for YOUR computer. You'll find this on the
back of your desktop computer, in the white Service Tag. (S/N is
Serial Number) The disk should be free, but the shipping and
Handling is not. The price a year ago was $17 for a 5 to 7 day shipping,
$24 for 2 to 3 day shipping.
When you receive the disk, and have it running, choose Repair.

I thought I would throw this in also,

Windows won't start


Hi,

When you put in the XP CD and it boots off the cd, the XP setup files copy across, and at the 1st screen, you should be able to choose Repair. Press r, and this will start the Recovery Console.

When you are in the recovery console, choose your Windows installation (You will see what I mean when you follow the instructions.)

When you are sitting at the command line(C:\>Windows), access your CDROM drive by typing the letter followed by a colon, eg "D:". It may also be E:, F:, or G:.

When you have changed to the CDROM drive, type the following:

cd\ <enter>
cd\i386 <enter>
expand pci.sy_ C:\pci.sys <enter>
C: <enter>
cd\ <enter>
copy pci.sys C:\windows\system32\drivers <enter>
If it asks to replace, confirm.

Then restart the computer.

Replacing with harddrive 40GB


Did you simply swap hard drives? "Couldn't find NTLDR" basically means the PC cannot find any version of Windows installed because the boot file is missing. This could be because you have a CD in the drive or the hard drive is missing or broken.


If you put in a new hard drive to replace your older smaller one you need to reinstall Windows on that new 40GB drive or it just won't work. If you have some PC Tech friends they should be able to move the data which is tricky or help you out.

Problem in XP installation in the HP presario Note book


Sata hard disk does not require driver, however the sata controller which belong to any manufacturer may require. You have to go to driver cdrom, browse for IDE OR SATA if you cannot find it the clue is "RAID" find the RAID driver, you will also find the sata controller driver
example only: si3112.cat, si3112.inf, siblabla.bla....

copy all the files in folder (do not copy folder!! only files). Then put floppy disk in drive, make sure you boot from cd-rom.

Start XP installation then follow:
Press F6 for third party SCSI or driver installation at the beginning of text mode installation. Press 's' when setup asks if you want to specify an additional device, and insert the diskette then press 'Enter'. From the menu presented next, select the controller installation process that corresponds to the version of Windows being installed and press 'Enter'.
4. Press 'Enter' again when prompted to continue on with text mode setup.

5. Follow the setup instructions to select your choice for partition and file system.

6. After setup examines your disks, it will copy files from the CD to the hard drive selected above and restart the system. After restart the setup process will resume to finish the installation.

Good Luck
