    Hello,:icecream:

    I need a an Image (ISO) to burn an Install CD for Windows XP Pro.
    Can anyone give me a Link which will work....please.

    I have an engl. Key for an Pro version but lost my CD and need to Install the Operating System again on another new Harddrive because the old HD is crashed.

    I am here in germany but it must be an engl version because of my engl Key, I bought the Laptop in the UK onced.

    Thanks. :worthy:

    Look at Windows-XP-Pro-OEM-SP3-Archive-(Untouched-ISOs) Also is this a branded Laptop i,e, Dell, HP, levono e.c.t if so you should make up an OEM:SLP cd or you can download it from the links. If it is branded machine and you use the key on the laptop you will need to call MS to activate whereas OEM:SLP cd will pre-activate no need to go online.

    :confused: It 's an Compaq EVO 610c, but maybe I will install it on a Acer Aspire 1350. Well I understand nothing from that answers above, anyway ...sorry.:ranting: But thx :rolleyes:. I only have an Install CD from Windows XP Home german, but I guess it will not work when I must enter the Key and I will type the english XP Pro Key ...am I right ? I think so, anyway....why must I check the Bios o_O.

    Ok then...one more lost Key :( on an Windows sticker.

    Thx.

    You are wrong if you took time and downloaded files on first linkIi posted you would see XPProSP3OEM in one of the text files.

    mostly this forum is dedicated to OEM:SLP type activation on branded machines there is a manufacturer string in dmi area in the bios you match this to oembios files + oem:slp key and you system will pre-activate all the information is available in the stickies section.
