Need help. Reinstalling Windows XP SP3 on same machine but no CD / licence key

Hello lady's and gentleman's. Here i have a delicate question for you.

The problem:

I just got and old laptop as a present but wireless drivers are faulty. So after a few tries i found out that i need a fresh windows to be able to install it to work correctly.

I have all the drivers ready for the machine.

If it helps the laptop is a Worhtman Terra Aura 1700


The Question:

Now i don't know how to reinstall the Windows, because i don't have a CD/DVD but on the bottom of the laptop is the License Key. Is there a way to burn and download a legit copy of Windows XP SP3 and use that same key again on the same laptop?

Thank you in advance!

  1. Not really delicate -- you have a legitimate XP key, you just need install media.

    Sadly, MS never made XP images available the way they did Windows 7. Your best bet is to ask around to see if anyone you know has an install disk.

    Ok. Thanks but the problem is I moved a month ago to another country and i don't know so many people. Most of them don't know what an installation disc is.
  3. Then you will need to buy one wherever you are; HERE is an example.
