Windows XP disk

  stuhellen 17:07 12 May 2005

I run a PC with Windows XP Home and want to do a clean install. I only have the restoration disk I got with my PC. Is there any way to order a Win XP disc without having to buy another licence?

But I don't understand why you don't just use the restore disc ????

Check in Windows Explorer in the Windows folder for a folder I386 right click it to see what size in Mb if the size is round about 450Mb then that is the XP setup and can be copied to disc there will be a setup file in it like Setup.exe

In the I386 folder the Winnt32.exe is the setup program used when you are in Windows. The Winnt.exe file is for DOS.

Those files appear in upper case in my I386 folder i.e WINNT32.EXE and WINNT.EXE
