Help... need XP Pro CD image...

I am looking for a windows XP Pro CD image to download. I bought it about a year ago and the CD is lost. I still have the product key code so all I need is a copy of the CD. I spoke with MS and they want $30 to send out a new cd. So, does anybody know where I can download an image?? Or if anybody out there can create me an image that I can download, that would be cool too.

Will MS let you download this??

I don't trust the Kazaa downloads.

No warez here, downloading XP in any form even if you do have the original CD is classed as warez, your only solution will be to either pay microsoft or find your cd

Thanks Speedy. This is a legit question and I honestly lost my cd. Seems like there should be better solutions for this kind of problem.

I can understand your predicament, you also have to see it from our angle that there are plenty of people trying to invent situations like this in an attempt to get info of where to "obtain" Windows XP

Obviously this can be frustrating for those who have a genuine legitemate problem, but its just the way it is.
And your only hope is to pay Microsoft for a new Cd unfortunately, and you cant deny that $30 for an operating system you use from day to day isnt a bad price
(its just unfortunate you've already payed more than that)

For better or worse, this is between you and MS. After all, they did nothing wrong here - you could have burned a backup copy of the cd and put it away for safe keeping. I'm not taking Microsoft's side, but this one does seem to be "user error". Sorry.

$30 seems very reasonable actually.
I haven't used my original cd for ages.
Usually used a backup and now I have a slipstreamed sp1 copy, so I will only be using the original cd when sp2 arrives :)

Cool.. thanks guys. I did not know that it was classed as warez even if you bought the original. Guess that's one way to help crack down which is completely understandable.

No problems :D as long as everyone knows where we stand we'll all get along just fine :p

EP - Is there a rough idea of when SP2 will be floating about? (i seem to remember lists/change logs being around the net..)

twocoltzigzag told us that when you slipstream SP1 you will lose a codec which Mafia the game depends on.
so stick with your original one who knows what the SP1 removes

since found out that the 2k Indeo codec free version works fine with XP
( for now )

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
