I have managed to lose my Win Xp Home CD. I have all my certificates and
product information but can't find the CD anywhere. My hard drive went dead
completely and the technical support people were unable to get any
information off of it. I bought a new hard drive and its ready to go but I
can't even get started without the CD. I have all my data backed up on DVD's
but not the Win XP Home Ed. Can anyone help?

If it's an OEM copy, then your computer vendor is the place to start. if
Retail, then look here:

I was left out in the wind in the same situation. I downloaded the 9 in 1
Windows XP from a torrent. Look up Windows XP 9 in 1 torrent. I think it's
ridiculous to not offer replacement CDs for reinstalling your OS. You can
probably also use a friend's CD if you have a valid product key. My vendor
was Dell, and refused to send a replacement CD, so I just used the torrent
ISO file. I've got 2 backups of the CD now. ;)

Your solution is to advise the OP to steal, when there are perfectly
legitimate ways of obtaining a replacement CD?

And if you forgot where you parked your car, would you expect Ford to
give you a new one?

What's being stolen? He's got a license key. That's what counts, not
the CD itself.
