The posting of download links to MS Operating Systems is against forum rules.

It is not illegal to download from the web if you own a license for the OS. We simply cannot post links as it is believed to encourage piracy.

Best option is to borrow from a friend or shop which will make you a copy. If you're forced to download, be sure you get the exact version and OEM if it was preinstalled or retail if you bought it in a store, check the comments to make sure nothing is added, the rightclick scan with AV and Malwarebytes

i have the retail version of XP with proper license keys.The only problem is DVD has too many scratches and is virtually unreadable in CD/DVD drive.As i said in my post none of my friends has XP DVD/CD.Why i asked about where to download XP ISO is because i read in other forum topics here people downloading valid windows 7 ISO and using it to reinstall windows 7.I \ searched in google but in vain

Sorry if i breached forum rules by asking about downloading links.

Thanks for the reply anyway

Just because I said we can't post links does not mean that you can't 'find' an XP ISO for download on your own, we just can't openly help you do it.
