    Hi there! Ok, I have an HP laptop that came with Vista, but is on XP Pro now. However, I prefer XP as I don't like XP Pro's useless extra feautures and running processes. Where can I find an HP OS RESTORE iso image of XP Home HP OEM SP2 or SP3? Why is this version so rare? :rolleyes:

    I also want to know how to reinstal Windows with the "C" key not functioning on my keyboard (Thanks HP for your s**tty products).

    You like XP but not XP Pro.. You mean home edition and its only very few features extra..
    You cant find but make one.


    If you have vista recoverypartition you can use HPs backup & restore software.

    Thanks for your reply. I think I'll go back XP Pro or install 2003 R2, as I have them on original CDs. As 2003 R2 is a newer OS, I might go for it. BTW, I hate Vista and I've never used it more than a month. :biggrin:
