Can't reinstall XP Pro

  Parklife 12:14 18 May 2004

Hi all
Had errors that couldn't be repaired so wiped my system to start again. I use the 6 boot up floppy discs as I have an external USB CD drive and need these floppys to load the drivers for it. So far so good. Everything goes ok and the screen asks for my win XP Pro disc. It finds it, reads it and goes through the partition and format screens which also go well but then asks for a Windows XP Professional Service Pack 1 CD which I should put in my CD drive. This is the problem. When I Originally installed XP Pro it never asked for this disc and installed with no problems. I do not have this disc and never have and didn't need it before. Any ideas how to skip this window or can I download this to a library CD drive and take it home to use it. Also I am using MIcorsoft Win XP Pro boot up discs set of 6. Same ones as originally and like I said XP Pro installed without asking for this extra disc.
