    Default Windows xp pro

    Anybody here have an old XP pro disc they'd be willing to send me? Not looking for anything shady. My wifes laptop BSOD'd and it won't reboot just gives me windows\system32\config\system file missing or corrupt error. Tried running the recovery disc and it won't recognize it for the system and we can't find the XP disc. It's an older Dell Latitude 610 and we just can't afford to replace it or upgrade to 7 or 8 right now. Thanks in advance for any help.

    I've got a XP Pro SP-less non-OEM that I've backed up. I can give you a link if you need it.
    Two years. They were great. Let's make the next ones even better!

    I've been looking for an XP Pro as well ... two CABs in my HDD-archived zip are corrupt, and I'm suspicious about the "intact" ones, better to just replace. I wish I never gave/sold away all my ancient Windows OEMs.
    My mind says Technic, but my body says Duplo.
