Default Can't find XP restore CD/ISO - 11-29-2009, 07:00 AM

I bought my Mini9 with XP from the Dell outlet but I made a bad mistake when I first setup the machine for OS X. I wiped out the partition on the drive that contained the restore. I also received no CD's in the box with my Mini.

I'm currently wanting to go back to XP but I would like to just use the factory XP Home with the key on my Dell but I can't find an ISO of it anywhere.

I've spotted Ubuntu ISO's but not XP Home. Anyone have any pointers?

FYI, not interested in any hacked or unlocked XP versions, I want to run the system legal on the XP that was supposed to come on it.

If XP was on it and you received no disks the people you should be talking to is Dell..not us, if you have any other issues feel free to ask, but Dell is really the one you should be addressing this with...there are NO Window installs on this site.......

Good Luck
