You know , you could just ask a friend for their cd or download one online

As long as you get the version and service pack number right it should be fine

And its perfectly legal , providing you use your own product key!

How can i made recovery of my window xp


I think you are concerned about creating a recovery console for windows xp, so that if windows fail you can have a chance to use it and recover the winndows.
You can install the Recovery Console on your computer to make it available in case that you cannot restart Windows. You can then select the Recovery Console option from the list of available operating systems during startup. To install the Recovery Console, you must be logged on as an administrator.
To install the Recovery Console, follow these steps:
  1. Insert the Windows XP CD into the CD drive.
  2. Click Start, and then click Run.
  3. In the Open box, type d:\i386\winnt32.exe /cmdcons where d is the drive letter for the CD drive. For Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, type d:\amd64\winnt32.exe /cmdcons where d is the drive letter for the CD drive.
  4. A Windows Setup Dialog Box appears. The Windows Setup Dialog Box describes the Recovery Console option. To confirm the installation, click Yes.

  5. Restart the computer. The next time that you start your computer, "Microsoft Windows Recovery Console" appears on the startup menu.

Gateway 4024GZ/How do I reinstall operating system w/out disks?


Ok this is not as hard as one may think. Get a copy of whatever software you want from the net. Either Burn to a DVD & use an external USB, DVD, and install as usual. Or put it on a memory stick and use that. You will, if your machine is disabled, have to use a third parties machine to do all of that. There are a number of tutorials on the net of how to make and boot and install from a USB Flash Drive.

My pc will not startup when i turn on it appears it crashed i have boot cd that i created. i tried to repair and it will not. im not sure if im doing it right.. i have windows xp.. the original error it...


Hello, Trace.

Here's some help regarding fixing this error. From HP Support:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&dlc=&product=89876&docname=c00188632

If you are still experiencing a problem, your created boot CD is probably faulty.

If it still is not working, depending on your hardware manufacturer, you may be able to access/run Factory Restore. Boot your system and press F10, F11, Alt+F10, or Ctrl+F11 to access Factory Restore. Please note that Factory Restore restores to the original settings and will wipe out anything that you have installed or saved on your PC.

Hope this helps.

Toshiba Satellite M35X-S163 Can't Be Recovered


This happens. Recovery/reinstallations sometimes takes many attempts. Only, you have to clean the CDs. Clean them with a soft cloth in + signs and not circular as one would think, CDs being circular. So, clean then top to bottom and right to left and vice versa.

Lost win.ini.net.dll file


You need to repair your system
But if you havn't the CD
Below is the step
But make sure you close any unnecessary software and applications that run in the system tray like Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo! Instant messenger and others, before using winnt32. This should speed up the whole process.

Understand that after a while your computer will start to slow down, freeze and sometimes not even shut down correctly. These symptoms are perfectly normal for Microsoft Windows operating systems that require a clean, fresh start. But sometimes manufacturers do not include a copy of the operating system on a disk to save you money when purchasing your computer and ultimately save them money too.Access the copy of the operating system on the hard drive. If manufacturers do not supply a Windows XP CD with the purchase of your new computer, they have most definitely stored a copy in your hard drive for later use. You can easily access this copy of the CD on your hard drive to completely reinstall or format partitions on your computer.

Back up your personal data including photos, pictures, documents, favorites, passwords and settings to CD/DVD/USB.

Make sure you have your Windows product key/serial number. This could be located on the computer itself, or in the original packaging it was supplied with. If you do not have one, look in the registry or contact your manufacturer immediately for more support regarding the issue.
Click on My Computer then C: then i386. This is the a part where a lot of people get confused. They realize that a copy of their Windows XP CD is here, but they look for the wrong files. Most people will try to find a file named "Setup", "Install", or "Windows". The file you are looking for is called "winnt32.exe".

Open this application and proceed with the instructions given. It will lead you through 5 simple phases that will wipe out your computer and reinstall the operating system.
Get your product key ready to enter it. Make sure you agree with the terms that should be provided when using the winnt32.exe application.

If you are using any operating system below Windows 2000 or Me, try looking for the winnt.exe application as the winnt32.exe application may not be availible for your version of the Windows OS in the I386 folder. Winnt.exe uses a command driven interface, and therefore requires simple commands to use to reinstall Windows or format partitions. You can find these simple commands here

Warning!

All drivers will be wiped clean. That includes graphic cards, audio drivers, wireless drivers, etc. Make sure your manufacturers has supplied you with the correct softwares to reinstall the drivers that will be lost on reinstallation of the OS.
Do not forget to back up all of your data with a system restore tool, or else everything will be lost. This means all software and programs currently installed on the computer.
Remember Microsoft will not take any responsibility for anything that may go wrong and cause damage to your computer system.

If the I386 folder or Winnt32.exe/Winnt.exe application does not exist, or you cannot find it, use the Search feature to help you (Start>Search). If it does not yield any results, a copy of the CD may not have been stored on your hard drive. Contact your manufacturer for more support.

If XP will not install from the CD or if you have a new drive with no operating system onit yet try these:

Install Windows XP from the hard drive with Windows 98 already installed:

Boot Windows 98
Insert the XP CD into your CD reader
Explore Windows XP through My Computer
Copy i386 folder to C:\
Go into C:\i386 folder and double click on winnt32.exe to launch the setup from the hard drive

Install Windows XP from DOS (ie. no OS on a new hard drive):

Boot with a Windows 98 Start Up disk
Insert the Windows 98 CD into the CD reader
Run smartdrv.exe from the Win98 directory on the windows 98 CD (file caching)
Type cd.. to back up to the root directory
Insert Windows XP CD into the CD reader
Copy the i386 folder to C:\
Go into C:\i386 folder on C: and type winnt.exe to launch the setup from the hard drive.
