Windows Xp Pro Sp3 Hp Oem Downloads

I knew MS had a site a while back to download their stuff, but can't find it right now. It saved my Vista computer once (though had to do a telephone registration) Now I am looking for a HP NetBook MS XP HOME iso. Any suggestions? I thought I had the download, but appears to be a Pro and it's an.exe (self-extracting, maybe) But I need home since I have the key code for that. HP wants $60 for recovery disks - I'll go buy Win 7 OEM instead of that, like I need another 5 hours to clear out junk-ware that comes with the recovery disk. Anyway suggestion? And please excuse the poor grammar and spelling and coherence, I have pneumonia and on drugs and crap so not thinking 100% clearly enough.

Sleep meds don't help much. There are no Microsoft sites that have OEM XP (Home or Pro) available for download.

That would mean they would have to host at least two dozen images (a Pro and a Home) to cover only the top 12 Royalty OEMs (Dell, HP, Compaq, Alien, Gateway, Emachines, Packard Bell, Fujitsu, Sony, Panasonic, Mitsubishi, NEC, Gem, IBM, Lenova, Powerspec, Fujitsu-Siemens, Etc. Boppin The Blues Midi File. If you use Bittorrent or download using other illegitimate web links or direct downloads then you are taking a large risk that the ISO may very well have multiple hidden Malware infections or even a few Rootkits. You would be getting something someone else has made or copied and if it is not the right version or the right OEM ID it will not work and you would have to try again with another download. Microsoft never supplied OEM downloads for XP.

There are 3 Versions: 1) VLK -- you can convert to OEM! 2) OEM -- if you don't have the right disk you need to enter the product ID from your computer, or add the correct OEMBIOS files if you don't want to activate it 3) Retail -- you can convert to OEM! » And I've never downloaded a Windows ISO that had a virus, etc. I am sure there are some but you make it seem more common than it is. If both netbooks are HP you should be able to copy the image and not have an issue with activation or even be prompted to re-activate or enter a product key.

Where can i find a legit XP Pro ISO? From the link, 'This file is a CD image file for users who wish to create an update CD for Windows XP Service Pack 3'. Your HP OEM CD should work; I use OEM discs all the time on various machines. You'll just have to remove the branding if it bothers you; otherwise, there shouldn't be a problem. If it doesn't take, though, you may try downloading the legitimate ISO here: Download Windows XP Service Pack 3 - ISO-9660.

I have Windows XP Home and Pro OEM for Dell and HP, and none have any rootkits or whatever. That either of you know of, but that doesn't mean it is 100% clean. Since you don't have the source code, you can't check it either. Unless you create an ISO directly from a commercial pressed XP OS CD, you don't know what you are getting and you have no way of knowing. It doesn't have to be a rootkit either as it can be a key-logger, or a worm, or any other myriad types of current or past malware/adware. Bottom line, I'll keep creating my own CDs from the 'C: I386 ' files on the PC as seen here » or I'll keep copying pressed OEM CDs when I come across them to make 100% clean OEM copies. I've DLed dozens of untouched ISOs from torrent sites.

These are legal and you can virus-scan them prior to burning if desired. Just make sure your scanner is set to deep scan archives and that it supports cab files. It'll prolly take a good while but no reason it wouldnt be effective. I've found compiled 'all-in-one' discs which to my knowledge are simply OEM copies that someone combined onto 1 disc.

My best ISOs are 1 each of all-in-one windows 7 with 32 and 64-bit versions of Home, Pro, and Ultimate in OEM, retail, and VLK versions, another of the exact same for Vista, and one with every 32-bit XP version (but it's running SP1). Said by: I'm not saying that 100% of stuff you can download online is virus-free, but you make the threat seem worse than it is. I think this might even be one of the rare cases The Pirate Bay actually takes down a torrent. » Probably written by the RIAA or one of their contractors.

I wrote in another thread with pictures how you can use any XP disc on a major OEM machine: » That is a hack and not anything a regular person would want to run on their PC if they care a single IOTA about security and having a 100% clean/verifiable OS install. Hacks like that are not-legitimate/not approved by Microsoft and people using them are just like script kiddies using the hack tools of others.

You mean copies of CDs that clearly state 'Do Not Make Illegal Copies Of This Disc'? You were not there when the person made the ISO from a CD then uploaded it or torrented it and for all you know each CD image that you have through Bittorrent is from a CD that is marked that copies are not to be made. There are no legal XP OEM downloads or they would be available at Microsoft or the OEMs web Sites and they are not available at either location. You have simply downloaded many illegal copies (typical as Bittorrent is over 60% Warez) making your copies second or third generation illegal copies.

All in One compilations, that is the staple of the software pirate and the warez scene, from everything I've read using Google. You must be up there in the ranks from what I'm learning and seem to some kind of trader/scener. Said by: i've DLed dozens of untouched ISOs from torrent sites.

If i have a dell laptop with an OEM W7 key, why does it matter what disc i use as long as i enter in the right CD key? It activates fine, sometimes requiring a call, and lasts forever. Every computer i own and run has legit Windows keys. Should i not install Windows on these computers if i lose the original disc? Should i be forced to buy a replacement disc from Dell/HP/MS when these are freely available online? All in one discs are often pirated copies with cracks and fake keys, but not all.

Why should i be restricted from installing legal software on a computer i own or with which i'm tasked with repairing when the license is legitimate? That's like saying you can't purchase a game, install the license/activate it, and then install a no-cd crack because the publisher doesnt trust you to not pirate a game you already own and forces insane copyright protection. And if you disagree with this, then it shows how ignorant you are about copyright laws pertaining to software licensing and how completely out-dated they are.

You aren't downloading those dozens and dozens (or is it hundreds?) of Torrents because you lost a XP CD or supposely are complaining about the under $20 cost for a replacement XP OEM CD from Dell or HP as you can simply make your own XP CD right from the I386 Folder of a OEM PC as seen here. » That just shows you have no legittmate reason to pirate or use Torrents if you lost an XP CD. Vista and Win7 are downloadable unlike XP, but I guess you torrent those since they have the BIOS cracks unlike the legitimate downloads. You simply appear to like to pirate/steal commercial software and seem to think it is cool and something to brag about, but that is far from being reality. Screw the law, instead of doing something to change it if you think it is outdated, just take what you want? If the shoe were ever on the other foot and you had some IP of value that others wanted, you'd be protecting your IP and I'd bet to a much more severe degree than current IP holders use.

You can't rationalize what you are bragging about. Lol youve obviously never worked at a pc repair shop or done in-home repair service or else you'd know the importance of all in one discs.

Being able to carry 3 discs versus ~10 makes a big difference. Continue thinking of me as a pirate even tho i told you i own every Windows license in my home. Im not some 16 year old kiddie. Your link to making your own OEM XP disc proves my point even more. If anyone can make it, why would it be illegal? As longas the key is legit for that version of Windows, like XP Home OEM, why does it matter what OEM disc is used? Vista and W7 tie certain OEM discs to specific BIOS'.

However, generic OEM discs exist and work on every computer on which i've installed them and activated with their license. I have used discs that have a BIOS crack on them but you can choose the option for unlisted/unmodified because you dont need to crack a legitimate copy of Windows.

Or is it every hour? And to the rest of this paragraph: you're an idiot if you cant comprehend the benefit of having 3 discs versus 10-15 every house you go to. Youre argument is asinine. Simple, people that have to hire any form of help to fix their PC don't know they have been screwed 90% of the time and only after they have been informed how to tell (did they lose all their files, downloads, installs, customizations, documents and settings due to a wipe/burn and format? If yes that's a big ass sign they were screwed) Or when they are recompromised within 24 to 48 hours because of a dirty OS being installed on their PC Or due to no security/no protection being installed do they finally begin to grasp the difference.

No, I'm not thinking that, not at all. You seem to have a inferiority complex though. I don't fix people's PCs by destroying their files or using Warez CDs or BIOS Hack Tools (I can format a PC when needed and still not lose the PC owners files - it is not magic, just simple, but rare common sense), otherwise that is not a repair, that's a screwing. That is fraud to put oneself out in the public as a repair tech when you use hacks, warez, and script kiddie tools on a paying customer's PC. Even a used car salesman is a higher lifeform.
