Dell Optiplex 230 XP OEM license RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Sirs

    I friend has bought a new computer and gave me his Dell Optiplex 230

    He formated the disk in order to have his personal files deleted.

    So now I want to reinstall the OEM XP that comes with the computer.

    Can I do that?

    If I can, where do I download the Windows XP.

    I visisted Dell´s website and found all the drivers but no geniune Operating system download option.

  • There is no legal public download of XP.

    You will have to order Recovery disks for your system from Dell - if they have them any more.
