Preinstalled OS

#1
In my hp old laptop Win XP home edition preinstalled version got corrupted and the hard disk is also got damaged. I have the Microsoft original labels can I get again the genuine Win XP or not.
Hp support is telling the laptop comes under retired products so no more support for that model.

Dear Siva,
You are talking about OEM License, which supply with machine.
try to install xp with OEM License after replacing hard disk , if it installed then it will be as earlier.
Thanks

As Microsoft also ended support for WIndows XP, I don't think you can activate any XP version as of now. But u can install a cracked version after changing that hard disk and use it perfectly fine.

You can check if you have the original recovery CD/DVD. This was one way to restore OS.

If yours is not in extended warranty, HP will not entertain you.
So buy a new blank HD. Go to some pc shop, pay 500 bucks and get latest win 7.
