Need free xp home edition for reinstall my computer

Sorry but I know of no place you can get a legitimate copy of XP for free. You can buy it for around $90 but be very careful and make sure it is not a pirated copy or you will have problems. Buy from a legit web site. Beware of used copies where the code has been used too many times. You will have a hard time getting the OS activated and may end up not being able to. Get an OEM version like this. Here is one for $88 with free shipping which is about as cheap as you will find a legit copy with a good code.

Needed to reinstall xp home used my recovery cd but because it's scratched it won't copy certain files now i can't use my computer at all

If someone else has a copy of Windows Xp Home for you to use, you can use their CD with the key provided on the label on your machine. You do not have to use the CD that came with your computer. Just note, you may have to install drivers separately.

I am unable to reinstall my windows copy

Have you created the Recovery CD's? If so, put the recovery CD in the disc drive and restart your machine. Most notebooks start from CD first and then from hard drive. If not, you could change that in it's BIOS. (Press F10 at the moment you see the HP Invent logo).

When the disc boots it allows you to choose from multiple options. Choose the options that sounds like "Restore factory defaults" or something like it.

The D-partition is only used to create the disc and hold info. There is no software there to run for recovery.

I hope this helps, if you need more help just ask.
I work at a company who is an HP Partner so.
