    Question Windows XP/PRO SP3 CD needed.

    Got Desktop from my brother's company (LAN), but they did not have the original Windows XP CD (lost). The computer was built by a company in Knoxville, TN. I called them - they do not supply extra CDs, but they said since I had the COA and product sticker on the side of the computer, I should be able to get a free replacement XP/PRO CD from Microsoft (hopefully with SP3 included). Is this true, and how/ where do I go? If not, is eBay my only shot? Thanks for feedback. Dave Sparkman.

    It's doubtfull that MS will provide a disk to you.
    Search for Windows XP, SP3 on eBAy or Craig's listings.

    MS is looking to end support of Win XP. You can get Win XP SP3 directly from MS. If you can find Win XP disk somewhere and just need SP3, download the ISO file and burn the Image to DVD. Perhaps you can find other ISO files here. There are many pages of Win XP downloads directly from MS.
