You are going to have to buy it. Your computer should of come with it, unless the copy on your PC is illegal.

Pretty sure XP MCE 2005 was sold as OEM only so there should be a license / product key sticker on the case somewhere.
If there is then you could ring Microsoft and try getting them to send you one.

What make and model of PC is it?

Chances are an OEM version of the install disc won't work. I am just going through that at the moment with a repair job I am doing on an NEC powermate which has had a hard drive failure and taken the restore partition with it.

Ring the local support number for the manufacturer of your brand name PC.

If you look at my past threads you will find a reference to one I did last week.
