    You don't say which model of Packard Bell PC he is using. I have a Packard Bell I Media backup disk Which allows you to load XP from the hidden BACKUP partition. Would this be of use to you?

    Recovery Disk

    Way back when I did On Phone Tech Support, people would call with the same problem. (Corrupted or Non-Fucntioning Recovery CDS). At that time, the only way to obtain a new CD was to call or write to Packard Bell and for about $45 - $65 they would mail you a new one. Recovery cds are computer model specific.

    I would suggest purchasing a full blown copy of Windows XP and using the recovery cd as a drink coaster.
