Easy answer is You Can't Download anything

With all Volume License Product that I have ever used M$ has always suggested Making a Copy of the Original and using the copy to install from and that is how I have worked over the years.

As for a replacement VL XP Install Disc you'll have to contact Microsoft in your country and order a Replacement and then keep it safe and make a copy of it and use that Copy to keep your systems running.

Microsoft Volume Licensing Service Center

rkoenigs, you need the "Microsoft Volume Licensing Service Center'. TR's filters are blocking all my attempts to include the URL, so you'll have to search for it yourself. It requires a free Windows Live logon. I believe your MS licensing rep will have to authorize access for that account, but I don't know the details since someone else in our department handled it.
