Windows xp Media center edition

by germansal / January 4, 2009 2:47 AM PST

Hi All
On my laptop I have Windows xp Media center edition and I want to reformat the hard drive and reinstall Windows xp Media center edition. The problem I have is I don't have a disk for it. The Windows xp Media center edition is on the D drive (HP recovery) Normally I seen it on the bootup menu ( hit a key to recover) but it is no longer there. Also if I go to my computer and hit the d drive it tells me I can't get on it because its the recovery partition. What can i do to get to that partition? Thanks SAL

Tell the model number so we can check if HP let's us make restore media.

You don't want to know how much it is to do a clean install!
