  1. you cannot install WIndows xp without the installation files. they are either on the installation cd, or depending on your computer, in a hidden partition on the hard disk. when you first start your computer there may be an option to do a factory restore which will wipe your disk of the current installation of windows and restore it to the way it was from the factory.
