Hello.

There is really not a way to tell what is on the disk other than to use it If the recovery disks works OK, you can always add SP3..

Note: the Windows XP Recovery Disk is not a general recovery disk for ANY computer, but it is developed for a certain brand and model. It includes the drivers for the hardware as well.

If you have the recovery disk for the brand and model it came from, you should be OK.

hope this helps.

Win xp sp3 serial number


Unfortunately serial numbers cannot be given on here due to possible copyright breaches. If the OEM windows was originally given with your computer then it should already have the serial number in it or with the disc. Also I would check if your computer came with a recovery partition on your hard drive for a reinstall of windows as that would stop any issues. If you don't know how to do this then add a comment about the make and model of your computer and i'll get back to you.

Install xp


To install Windows XP on a Panasonic Toughbook CF52
you have two choices:

1) Use a standard Win'XP Pro SP3 boot CD and then
then download each driver from the Panasonic Website:

http://pc-dl.panasonic.co.jp/itn/drivers/d_menu_en.html

2) Purchase the recovery disk from Panasonic directly
from the following website:

http://business.panasonic.com/support-computerstablets-dvdrequests

Here is what they say:
Recovery DVDs are available by mail for select Toughbook® products. Windows® XP back up service is only available to customers who purchased Panasonic computers with XP downgrade rights. Windows XP Backup Image and Windows 7 Recovery DVDs restore a PC to its original factory image. The standard Panasonic factory image includes the Windows operating system and all drivers/applications originally installed by Panasonic.

That is it.
Good Luck!

  5. Follow instructions and include SP3 for XP, all the drivers for laptop and create ISO Image

You need to download all the drivers installer files from manufacturer website first, and also all the software you want to install automatically with Windows. Then you build a Windows Xp boot CD with all the software setup embedded.
