Operating System Not Found

By sk8erlandry ·
Ok, let me start from the beginning. I was formating my HP computer and then a error popped up and the computer shut down. Now when I start up the computer it says Operating System Not Found! And HP doesnt come with recovery disks and I don't have a Windows XP disk. Please help! I will supply more info on request.

Do you have a restore disk in your possession,this will be the only option left available to restore the OS,if not contact HP tech support or explore other options to obtain the Windows XP operating system.

No I don't. Now I went to the Micro$oft website and I....10 minutes later, my computer has a blue screen and is asking for "Windows XP Home Edition CD-ROM" and I don't have one. I BOUGHT WINDOWS BUT I DON'T HAVE THE DISK!! Is it still illegal to download the disk if I already bought it?

Also, I have a computer with Windows XP Home Edition on it. Is it possible to make a disk from my other pc?

HP will send you a custom restore disk or THEIR version of WinXP for about $20.00 (in Canada, probably 5 cents in the US).
