  4. Oh bios Johnny sorry
  5. That mini came with XP installed like you stated.You will need an XP disc to format and install to restore it back to factory settings.You will need a valid XP license also.Is there still an XP license on the bottom of the mini?
  6. I still have the XP license on the bottom, but it didn't come with the disc :(
  7. And there is no product key either
  8. You will have to find an XP install disc that matches your sticker : Home , Pro etc.
  9. I still have the XP license on the bottom < The key should be here
  10. This was a promotional mini for signing up for cable service a while back but there is no product key...very strange. Just proof of certificate of authenticity sticker and product: compaq mini and serial #.
  11. Contact Compaq.
