    I have an old dell that needs fixed but I need a copy of XP to load onto it. I figured maybe someone here has one laying around.

    Thanks

    Edit: I would prefer a store bought version versus anything released with a retail system.

    Edit2: XP Pro purchased from 4x4n. Thanks everyone for the offers, advice, and assistance. Awaiting delivery for transaction to be complete.

    Take a look at e-bay. You might get lucky and find some selling original disk for that dell. I had a dell 280GX and for 10 dollars on ebay it put XP Pro on it. You just got to match up to your system.


    Here's who I bought from. And it worked great had 3 units that was able to install on. Also he had a drivers disk that I bought two.

    I don't want all the other dell crap... just an OS. I can get XP on ebay all the same... I just prefer to slide my money to other TPU users when possible.

    Hey just thought if no one had it that was an option. It dosent come with all that dell crap just the OS that came with the system.

    Sorry for trying to help.

    Did I come off as rude?? :eek: I really didn't mean to. I even gave you a thanks.

    Don't be so sensitive... I honestly did appreciate the info but I'm just hoping to get a plain ol' vanilla version of XP.

    Looks like 4x4n has retail version of XP Pro.

    A deal is in the works.
