View Full Version : XP Pro reinstall - no disk

I need to reinstall XP on a machine without a disk. I have the original's product key.

Can I use another machine's XP restore disk or another full disk to do this?

if its the same version as your original, i dont see a problem

Yes, you *usually* can Greg. I would suggest you use the "full disc" rather than the restore disc.

did this a couple of weeks ago, the xp disc didn'r reconise the keycode, so rang MS and told them my disc was damaged and using somebody elses, they gave me new numbers to put in, they were fine about it
