    I work in PC Repair and Refurbishing, and I'm looking for untouched ISO's of the following:

    Microsoft Windows XP Professional VLK x86 SP0
    Microsoft Windows XP Professional VLK x86 SP1
    Microsoft Windows XP Professional VLK x86 SP2
    Microsoft Windows XP Professional VLK x86 SP3

    Microsoft Windows XP Home x86 SP0
    Microsoft Windows XP Home x86 SP1
    Microsoft Windows XP Home x86 SP2
    Microsoft Windows XP Home x86 SP3

    The reason for this is that we sell products that are refurbished, which have been wiped and reloaded, and activated using the original product key, so they are all genuine.
    But product key activation seems to vary depending on the installation's service pack.
    Example, I have some machines that had no service pack originally, and I tried installing xp with SP3, and it wouldn't activate.

    Some are OEM, some are retail, we get just about everything.

    Some have the company name right on the sticker, some actually say OEM on the sticker, some just say Windows XP Professional, or Windows XP Home.
    So I need copies of just about everything, and I dont really care if its VLK or not, I actually have no idea why I put that in there :p

    Where would I get this, and how would I use it?
    Is there a copy per version/service pack of xp?

    Yeah, As I said, I really have no idea why I said VLK. I didn't -mean- VLK. Just ignore that entirely.
    Basically, we're a small company that buys computers from local businesses, such as hospitals, call centers, etc.
    We wipe the hard drives entirely, and install whatever OS was on it to begin with, and activate using the sticker on the machine.
    Our last XP disk, out of the many we once had, has scratched due to a bad tech mishandling it, and now we have no means of installing the OS's.
    I don't really care -how- we do it, just -that- we do it.

    Is it entirely dumb to say I have no idea where to start with this?
    We just had retail cd's of XP home and pro, and installed them accordingly, then activated them.
    the only cd we have left is an XP SP3 corporate, which I assume isnt something I want to be using at all.

    I was mistaken, the machines come to us already wiped clean, the hard drives are entirely cleaned, including recovery partitions.
    The machines all come with a sticker with a product key, usually Windows XP Pro.
    All we do is stick a windows install cd in, install the OS, and generally when the dialog comes up when starting windows, asking to activate, we shut it down.
    So the customers have to type in the key which is on the machine.
    We've never dealt with OEMBIOS or anything else, we've always used retail cd's.
    That's what I'd like to do. Exactly what we've always done. The only issue is that our cd's are scratched and unrecoverable. I need new copies, and we have no backups.
    If it comes down to it, I'll download torrents of what I need.
    but I do need a non-SP3 disk for both home and pro.
    everything I've been sent so far seems to be about preactivation, and OEMBIOS, and whatever else.
    We've never had any issues doing it the way we do it, and I don't want it to change now. We just should have been smart and backed up our disks.

    I can understand if you want only Retail editions, but I cannot understand this:
    Why waste time & effort installing outdated versions & update them again? :confused:
    Regarding the former, a search could have pointed you to this post. ;)

    The issue is that the product keys on the machines, for some reason, will not activate on an SP3 install.
    However, we had no issues with an original disk.

    I think the problem with activation is that you are trying to activate a COA product key, using a retail installation. Maybe just read up a bit.

    There is a difference here Oz, the PC's the OP is talking about did originally come with windows OS systems and have COA stickers, and even if no media came with computers originally there would have been recovery partition to make media, like most newer branded computers. And yes a legitimate company would have install media e.c.t or it would just buy it not post on forum. At the end of the day the Legal side of it is not our problem we will not be the ones who get prosecuted.
