Repair Install option not available on Windows XP disk

  1. I made 2 slipstream Windows XP cds that do not have the repair install option. Is there a way for me to make a bootable xp cd with the repair install option?

    Think you might need to buy them from Micro soft website, might be downloadable though.
    As for coping them for other systems wouldn't that depend on your individual Micro soft licence? Sorry no real alternative from here?

    You might be right. I have an OEM disk that I know would work, but it's from Dell. The laptop I am working on is an HP. I was told once that you should not mix them.
