You can call your manufacture for a Recovery CD if you bought it from a shop and it did not include this then your outa luck, you can ask around your friends/family may know some one, depending on what Service pack you have, you can do a repair install which pretty much in a nut shell dose the same thing but keeps programs/data, so on.

BIT-torrent .. what?

in a case that your orginal legit copy of XP that you've backed up
on another pc
you can use deamon tools lite
and then nero

in deamon you would load the iso
and in nero you would take the iso from the virtual drive and make a copy :D

I have had to format hdd (latitude d530) xp pro) but cant find original disc i got with laptop


You can make a bootable Recovery Console CD by downloading an ISO file and burning it to a CD.

The bootable ISO image file you need to download is called:

xp_rec_con.iso


Download the ISO file from here:

http://www.mediafire.com/?ueyyzfymmig

Use a new CD and this free and easy program to burn your ISO file and create your bootable CD:


http://www.imgburn.com/

Here are some instructions for ImgBurn:


http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=61

It would be a good idea to test your bootable CD on a computer that is working.


You may need to adjust the computer BIOS settings to use the CD ROM drive as the first boot device instead of the hard disk.


These adjustments are made before Windows tries to load.

If you miss it, you will have to reboot the system again.


When you boot on the CD, follow the prompts:

Press any key to boot from CD...


The Windows Setup... will proceed.

Press 'R' to enter the Recovery Console.


Select the installation you want to access (usually 1: C:\WINDOWS)

You may be asked to enter the Administrator password (usually empty).


You should be in the C:\WINDOWS folder.

This is the same as the

C:\WINDOWS folder you see in explorer.


The Recovery Console allows basic file commands like: copy, rename, replace, delete, cd, chkdsk, fixboot, fixmbr, etc.


For a list of Recovery Console commands, enter help at the prompt or read about the XP Recovery Console here:

Try this:

3. When you have installed CD Burner XP, start program, choose "Burn ISO image" and browse to Vista Recovery Disk.iso file.
4. When program has finished to burn ISO image, put CD into PC with "boot mgr is missing" problem.
5. Re-start PC, press F2 2-3 times, go into BIOS Setup Utility, choose Boot, move CD/DVD unit up to the first line with F6. Press F10 , choose YES.

Step1. Download Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0 and save it to your hard disk. Take note of what folder you saved the file in.
Step2. Burn the downloaded ISO file onto a CD. * To burn your CD, you'll need a blank CD-R . * If you are familiar with burning .iso image files you may use any software you already have such as Nero, Sonic, Roxio etc.
Step 3. Put in your newly created CD and remove your Windows password.
(1) Insert newly created CD in your CD drive and reboot your computer. When the CD boots, you'll see Windows Password Recovery 3.0 initializing (see screen shot below). If so, you can continue to the next step. If the computer still boots into Windows, it's necessary to change BIOS boot sequence to make it boot from the CD. You can find more info about this on our BIOS page HERE..

The following is based on an article by Billy O'Neal at http://www.thecomputerparamedic.com,

How to use the Recovery Console to make repairs to Windows XP

First, if you don't have a Windows XP Home, Pro or MCE installation CD, don't despair.

Download the following and create a bootable CD from the .iso file: XP Recovery Console

Note that you don't burn the iso file itself to CD, you create a CD from the iso file using your CD burning software.
If you don't have any CD burning software installed or if you're unsure, you can follow the tutorial here:
How to Burn an ISO File

You can delete the RC.ISO file once you've burned it to CD or DVD.

Steps to perform on the problem machine:
  1. Place your Windows XP Installation CD or the new Recovery Console disk you just created into your CD or DVD ROM drive, and reboot.
    You should see this:
    pressanykey.png
    If you don't see the above, try pressing the F10 or F12 keys during boot and selecting the CDRom device from the list.
    If that doesn't work, enter BIOS Setup by pressing the F1, F2, F10 or Del key during boot and modifying the
    Boot Order or Boot Priority to make the CD/DVD first boot device.

    If your machine won't boot to the CD, make a post in the Microsoft Windows™ forum asking for assistance with this task.
    Please include the exact make and model of your computer so we can provide more exact instructions.
  2. Press any key to start Windows Setup (Don't worry.. we're not actually using setup at this point)
  3. Wait a while for setup to start, until you see the following screen, then press the R key.
    img-resized.png Reduced: 71% of original size [ 720 x 396 ] - Click to view full imagercr.png
  4. Wait until you see this screen, and enter the number of your main installation. (Typically 1 for C:\Windows)
    img-resized.png Reduced: 79% of original size [ 645 x 151 ] - Click to view full imagercselectwindowsinstall.png
  5. Press Enter.
  6. If prompted to do so, enter your Administrator password. If you don't have one, leave it blank and press enter.
  7. From the command prompt, enter: chkdsk /r (note the space between chkdsk and /r)
    Allow it to complete undisturbed.
  8. Remove the CD/DVD then reboot. Windows should now begin loading.
For more information on the Recovery Console, read this Microsoft article: How to install and use the Recovery Console

Also, if your computer has a floppy drive, you can download the Windows XP Setup boot disks from Microsoft and boot them to start the Recovery Console.
