Which is problematic for XP. There is no valid XP ISO from MS that I know of.

That's why I didn't specify XP. Any Windows will do. You'll have to buy a new key anyway.

The OP was asking about XP. The key that he apparently has would work.

how do i install windows xp pro with no disk but have the key i replaced the hard drive


Was this a preinstalled OS? If so, you 'might' be able to buy a Recovery disk set from the manufacturer.
If it wasn't preinstalled, you need to buy a new OS. And you can't buy XP any more.
