You can contact Microsoft and replace it for seven dollars. but get it quick before they don't have disks for it. look for bob_computer here on fix-ya he has it posted as a tip for getting disk replaced or go thew the riga maroe to find the number for Microsoft to get the disk replaced. I hope this helps They will send you a new disk and new key.

Cant Install windows 7 pro

Im not sure which file you are referring to but you could just a repair of the installation
this is fot the master boot record

if there are any other files , settings or programs during the repair process options for these should be available

Insert your Windows XP installation CD or recovery disc, and restart the computer.

Instead of attempting to boot Windows as it normally would, the computer will give you an option to boot from the CD.


Press a key when prompted, then wait for the setup program to load.

Press the "R" key on the "Welcome to Setup" screen.


This will cause the CD to launch the Recovery Console instead of attempting to install Windows XP on your computer.


If you have an administrator password on your copy of XP, then you will need to enter it in order to log in to the Recovery Console.


Choose the installation of Windows XP that you want to repair (generally the only option). Wait for the command prompt to appear, then enter "fixmbr." Press "y" when prompted to let the FixMBR utility overwrite the corrupted bootloader with a new copy.


Remove your XP disc or recovery disc, then type "exit" into the command prompt.

The exit command should cause the computer to reboot, allowing the computer to load the new bootloader file and then continue Windows XP startup as normal.


Hope this helps

I bought an xp pro laptop but the operating system disk never came with it, i have the serial number but no disk, what can I do?


If the laptop is new it should prompt you to create a recovery disc.
If it is old and you dont have a disc, you could download a copy of wndows from a torrent site, but use your own serial key.
It would have to be exactly the same version, if it is an OEM copy, tied to a make (eg Dell)
Search for Dell windows xp pro.

You will need a torrent client like Utorrent or limewire to download torrents

Download and install windows xp prof, hardware lenovo E5300 A4086


Hi,
There are many places online to download Windows XP

but none of them are legal. Windows XP is not

distributed online so there is no legitimate way

to download Windows XP, even from Microsoft.

No matter where you find it, any XP download you

come across online is illegal. The only legal

course of action when you need a copy of Windows

XP is to actually buy a new copy of Windows XP.

It's that simple.

It's important to note as well that even if you

did download Windows XP, what you would get is an

image of the Windows XP Setup CD. For example, you

would probably download an ISO file like

windows-xp-pro.iso, or something like that. You

would then burn that ISO image to a CD that you

would then use to install Windows XP.

In many ways, however, what you actually pay for

when you legally purchase a copy of Windows XP is

the product key (sometimes referred to as a CD key

or key code, or incorrectly as the serial number).

This unique number is required during an

installation of Windows XP. So even if you did

download Windows XP, you would still need a valid

XP product key to install and use Windows.


Here iam providing the link to buy Windows Xp pro

Sir, you will need to make use of a recovery disc or a retail version of an operating system disc in order to reload windows. i dont think you'll be able to download a licensed of windows copy over the net. what you can download are the free OS like Ubuntu.

I need to reload Windows 2000 Pro on a corupt IBM Thinkpad.


Assuming you have no data to lose,,,, you could always try to download copy of Windows 2000 Professional and burn it to a CD. Before you do this,,, you have to make sure you have a sticker somwhere on your laptop with your original product key. If you do decide to download Windows 2000 Professional,,, make sure its an OEM copy,,, and of course there is no guarantee that it will be a full copy, or a copy without virus's in it. DO NOT try to download Windows 2000 Professional if you dont have the original product key, as it is illegal. Also,,, do not try and find a product key online,,, that is also illegal. I have to be perfectly clear that the only legal way to download somethign like Windows 2000 Professional is if u have the original product code or key. You can than use this newly burned copy to format and reinstall windows, and than from IBM's web site u can download all the drivers needed for your model

Won't boot into Windows


With this problem you will have to do either a repair or reload of the operating system, and it could still be that the hard drive is beginning to fail, you won't know this until you try the repair/reload. You will have to use either a Dell disc or a Windows operating system disc. If you use a disc designed for, say, a Gateway system it will load, but it will only give you a temporary or trial system usually anywhere from a week to thirty days, then it will either shut down or ask for an authorization code or product key, I've tried. If you have any trouble finding a disc, you can contact me at pyrhyc@yahoo.com, I sell valid copies of both the Dell disc for $25 or Windows XP Pro with service pack 2 for $40 at my shop.
