Question about Dell Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
The reintallation disk works only if you have formatted only partition C, since the copy of the OS is usually on the hard disk, and the rescue disc does not contain the OS, just boot-up and then activates the OS hidden on your hard disc to complete the installation.
Now your only option is to get hold of a original disc which has the same OS, but use the key code which should be printed on a sticker on top of the cabinet. Otherwise install and Call up microsoft toll free no. and punch in the the Sr. No. & product No. and they will provide the key for activating it within 20-30 days. The entire sequence is by a recorded message and you will be required to only punch the P No, & Sr. No. on the telephone number pads only.................sodeep

Because your disks are for reinstalling windows and programs only. It does not have any other features for you to use. What are you looking for? If you want to reinstall windows, simply put it into the computer, click restart when ready and when the startup comes again, it will say boot from cd press any key, hit enter. It should prompt you from there. Cheers.
