Specs: Windows XP
I have genuine version of xp. I want to format and re-install xp but I don't have bootable xp CD. So from where can I download bootable xp CD for free which have genuine version and from which I can reinstall genuine xp.

I have my product id i.e serial key of my genuine xp version. If I install pirated version of xp and if i insert my genuine product id in that pirated version then would it become genuine xp from pirated xp?

If you have the product ID then any XP CD will work providing it is the same type as already installed. i.e XP Professiona/Home or Retail/OEM.

If the computer came with an OEM version already installed then yo need the same version. A retail version will not work with your key, pirited or otherwise.

If it is OEM you should be able to get an installation CD for the computer manufacturer.
