I'm looking to purchase a new IDE HDD for an old a450n to just play with. The original HDD crashed, problem is I can't find the XP recovery discs and they aren't avail from HP anymore. Any dieas how I might get XP on this machine and get it back and working on a new HDD?

What do you mean by crashed? Can you restore the recovery partition and copy it to the new drive.
Phil: Thanks for responding, I had a physical failure of the HDD and paid to have pics and docs recovered, no programs or OS recovery (partition).
