Strange question!

Only if you have a recovery partition which allows you to recover to factory default.

Also some PC (older ones mostly) use to have the i386 directory copied from the CD to the hard drive. If you have one of those then you may be able to create a home made CD from it. However, that is a more complicated story.
If you have one of these then look here for starters:

As long as you have the product key, you can use anyone's XP disc. If you don't have access to one, try the torrents.

If you borrow a friends CD then you must make sure it isthe same type as your installation. That is to say XP HOME/PRO plus either OEM/Retail/VLK

If you don't have access to one, try the torrents
Are we now encouraging piracy?
I thought this was not permitted on computing.net?
