What is the reason for the full re-install of Windows? Most OS problems can be sorted without doing this.

Otherwise I can source an XP cd from someone for you and do the re-install. Is the install of Windows legitamate or not? If its a branded PC, its quite likely that the setup will be on a partition on the drive.

If its legit but you just never got the CD with it, you can usually use an illegal disk and get Microsoft to authorize you a new key (and sometimes they will even have the decency to send you a new cd for a couple of dollars).

If its not legit, then I can get ahold of a CD from an anonymous source which is a VLC and it would give you access to all updates, but I would not be able to give you a CD.

If you need a cd though, it would be back to usual old illegal version, which is a pain in the arse to update lol!

PM me with when is best for you and what CD you will need me to get and ill be happy to sort something.

Don't want payment matey, I like doing it as a hobby, I kinda miss doing it as me day job now hehe.

Is it XP? If you've got the serial, I can send you a DVD with XP on it. You won't be breaking any laws with that.
I'm sure you can get it from Microsoft's site (without a serial).

Did Packard Bell not include any sort of restore CD? Sometimes I know they put the data required for a restore on a secondary (sometimes hidden) partition of the hard drive, and can be accessed via pressing like F10 or similar at the boot screen.

Otherwise, it shouldnt be a problem too much to get a copied CD and then contact Microsoft, as the Windows is actually registered to the PC rather then the a CD as such (WPA works it out from an algorythim generated from the component serial numbers, and then registers the serial to that PC - which is why when you change more then 3 hardware components Windows becomes invalid until you telephone Microsoft).

Uusally Microsoft will help you to renew the code, but I suppose its a question of how nice they are being atm.

I think the best thing to do is for me to have a look at the PC prior to doing the install so we can work out what we will need, and possibly contact Microsoft to confirm thier standpoint on this (I am sure they will be very good, they usually are).

Whenever is best for you I can come down matey.
