    Hi all,

    here is the deal,
    how can I install xp when I have the os key(on the side of the computer panel), but I dont have the cd (media)?

    Can use any xp cd and use the key that I have?

    cmd
    diskpart
    list disk
    select disck x
    clean
    create primary partition
    active
    format fs=fat32 quick
    assign
    exit

    then copy the files in media to pendrive/flash drive
