    So I bought an old laptop and now I want to install windows XP on it. On the back of the laptop, it says product key, but since I don't have a cd, I don't have an installer, so I can't install it. If anyone has a solution, please write. Thanks in advance.

    What is the brand name and model name and exact model number of that laptop?
    What is the exact Windows XP version on its Certificate-Of-Authenticity sticker?
    Is the 25-character product key on that sticker clearly readable?

    PM me. I'm not gonna give the file out in the open.

    Tell me whether it's for Home or Pro, though. You'll also want to edit SETUPP.INI in /I386 directory of the ISO so that it has 'OEM' instead of '000' as the last three digits of the PID, since otherwise the key won't work during Setup.
