Clean install of WinXP SP2 without CD

June 10, 2011 at 19:30:00
Specs: Windows XP, 119MB
My very old HP (from 2004) now running XP SP2 (originally SP1) needs a clean install. I wasn't provided with any CD's -- recovery or Windows XP.

Is there ANY possible way to do a clean install of XP without any CD? Also, my recovery partition is corrupted....does anyone know how to fix it? One last thing for now, my PC keeps rebooting for no reason, any tips on how to stop it or how to fix it?

Thanks in advance,


P.S. My computer "specs" - Windows XP SP2 Home, Intel Celeron CPU 2.50GHz, 119MB RAM

One may be able to try repair using another persons cd, just don't install.

One may be able to get a cd from HP.

Reboots could be a virus or other file problem or a hardware problem.

Try safe mode and see event logs.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
