    your question is unclear, is the drive not functioning? you do not need a product key, go to your manufacturer's website and look for a new drive that will match the specifacations of your pc.
    If you are talking about your installation cd, what are you trying to do? reinstall os?
    what exact ISO file are you searching for?
    Finally, what is the issue you are facing.

    I have to reinstall xp, but the cdrom is not working.
    the laptop manufacturer charges 35euro for a cdrom with XP.

    as I have the product key, how can I get an iso file with XP home edition?

    thank you!

    you could go online for your user manual, and most laptops have a recovery partition to set pc back to oobe .
