You should have a system recovery disk. If you don't, then you will need a XP Home disk. As long as you have the XP installation code (usually placed on a sticker on the outside of your comptuer), you can use any XP Home disk. It's the product code that is really needed. Go borrow a CD from a friend and use your software code that is on your computer.

I need to re-install Windows XP Home Edition


Contact Averatec and order recovery media, if they are still available.
If you cannot get a Windows XP OS to install, you can always try Linux. The Ubuntu distribution, and most other ones are free.

Hi there, it seems that the OS (operating system) is corrupted. You will need to reinstall it. Download an installation cd, burn it and you can start the process.

Hi, I need driver for windows 7 I try install for xp and run like in xp but it is not working if you have any tip I will be thankfull


Hi marec2009
Unfortunately , you don't tell us what device is concerned with this compatibility problem .
If nothing works , uncluding troubleshooting in compatibility XP , the only way to get out of the issue is a workaround : installing a virtual version of XP on your machine but you can do it only under restricted conditions :
You are running Windows 7 Ultimate , or Professional or Entreprise :
you can download and install a free virtual version of Win XP from : http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx
Other versions :
.If you have the W XP install disc , you can install a virtual version of W XP on your machine from http://www.vmware.com/products/player/
If you still have the install disc , you can also partition your primary and install W XP on the new partition from http://download.cnet.com/Partition-Wizard-Home-Edition/3000-2094_4-10962200.html.Back up your data first.

Best regards .

Where i could download microsoft xp home edition


You can't. You will have to buy the disc somewhere. I recommend looking on ebay for one that does not have an installation key with it and then use your own key. If you are trying to re-install on a machine that has crashed, there will be a copy of the operating system on the recovery discs that came with the machine. If your don't have the recovery discs, you can get them from the manufacturer for about $15-$25.

I think you have these options:-
1. Explain your problem to PC World and see if they can help.
2. Borrow a Windows XP Home Edition disc from a friend.
3. Download a Windows XP Home Edition disc from the internet. I don't know how legal this is, but as you have already got the legal copy installed and are only using the disc to install other programs you might be OK.

Windows xp home edition reinstall


If you use his disk, that will be better, because if it is original HP disk, it should install all original drivers at all, however this may delete all files on the computer depending on the type of installation you do.

Installing an older version of XP home does not make a big difference , as windows will update the system using automatic updates. What must be done, is ensuring that all proper drivers are installed.

Check device manager, in control panel/system, and see if all devices are installed with proper drivers.
