Would anyone be willing to burn me a copy of their Windows XP installation disc (preferably SP2 or earlier) OR point me towards a no-frills torrent? The last one I tried gave me a corrupt .zip. Thanks.

N.B. I have a legitimate CD key, just need the boot disc.

Is your key for Home or Pro?

Pro. I found a Pro SP3 download, but it's the Corporate Edition. I don't think SP2 keys will work with SP3 installs. True?

As far as I am aware it will work although I am not 100% positive with the whole Corporate thing.

However, any valid key will work with a SP.

In case whatever file you found doesn't work, I just ripped a copy of my XP Pro RTM (or SP0 if you will) and am uploading it to my Dropbox.

Will take about another 50 mins to upload and I will likely be in bed before it's done. Will PM you a link to download in the morning.

I also have a key that will work for it in case your own doesn't happen to. I got it as an "education key" and it's worked for myself and many friends over the years. No probs updating at all.

File is just under 500 MB. You will have to download whatever SP you want.
