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
