I think, you cannot.
If the OEM was preinstalled, there should be a system restore partition on the hard drive, which mostly can be access by pressing ALT+F10.

CAUTION: By restoring the system, you will loose all your data.

Therefore, you should use either a Linux Live CD like Knoppix or BartsPE, to backup you data in the first place.

To be blunt....stop dicking around and borrow an xp home cd. Not that anyone will like this but you can google , download and burn the disk.

You are allowed a backup copy.....Yes?
