I don't know of a way to create an XP CD from scratch. You will need to find a copy somewhere. Find a friend with an XP machine and beg him to borrow his CD.

You will still need a product key. You might as well buy the key and CD at the same time: Amazon.com: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition SP3 for System Builders - 1 pack: Software

You can download a copy on Torrent, but you will still need a product key. That's why I recommend buying an official one on Amazon or another site.

We don't support piracy here, so we can't help you find a cracked copy or anything.

Hi Jonathan ! I think torrent download is a bit risky. Sometimes the files contain malware or virus. The first suggestion you gave him to buy a legal copy is the god option.

But the better option is change the mobo, processor and ram to make the pc compatible with win 7, if it is to expend some money

Yeah, I would find it really hard to pay for Windows XP at this point.

I, too, wold rather upgrade the computer than invest in a copy of XP.
