    I have been searching the forums for a download for a German XP Pro OEM SP3 ISO and cannot find any live links. English links are easy to find. I have a customer from Germany who has an Acer notebook and needs a repair install performed on his PC. Problem is, I only have English versions of Windows. His original discs are at home in Germany.

    I would prefer a direct download from MS servers if anyone has one.

    TIA,

    Jon

    EDIT: Can anyone confirm if this is an OEM or Retail version?

    How do you tell if that ISO is Retail, VL, or OEM?

    And I need a link to DL if anyone has it. I am trying to avoid paying $200 for a TechNet subscription if possible.

    OK, I found this link and have started the download, but I am still unsure if this is VL, Retail, or OEM. There has to be a way to reference the x14-xxxxx number...

    According to the name it looks like it's retail.

    After you unpack it, check the SHA1 to make sure.
