What laptop is it. It might have a partition in it with the back up disk already installed and that will have the original windows in there.

Ok its a HI GRADE , What model number is on it? If it does have a backup disk installed you will not have to access the desktop you will do it as it starts up

A quick search found this

How do I reinstall Windows when my system did not come with a Recovery CD (Windows XP systems)?

As your system starts you should see a “PRESS F10” message. Pressing F10 at this point will start the system recovery program, and should result in a “Starting system recovery” message appearing.




To completely wipe and reinstall your system click the ADVANCED OPTIONS button, and then click on the QUICK FORMAT option. Then press the NEXT button and answer YES to the next two questions.

Try what i posted above and if that don't work give them a call and ask for the recovery disc for the lappy. They might charge you a little for this but it will be cheaper than buying xp.

Yes unless someone removed the partition that the manufacture put in. Worth a try anyway?

#11
No probs and if you can't do it just reply in here someone should be able to sort it out but I would get in touch with the manufacturer I have posted above and they should send you the recovery cd's

Good Luck..
