Lost my backup XP Home edition CD RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently messed up my OS by trying to dual boot XP and Ubuntu (a mistake I'll never make again). I completely reformatted my second hard-drive to Ubuntu (so it's unusable), and the some of the contents of my C drive are messed up; including my wireless internet connection. I tried to get my father (who is a computer programmer) to fix the problem, but he couldn't. He just told me we would have to reinstall XP. My computer came with a backup disk, but I've lost in sometime over the last 2 years. It's an Insignia desktop computer. Is there any possible way of getting another copy of XP? I've contacted Insignia, but they're never any help. If I can't get another copy of XP, is there anything else I could do to reinstall the operating system?
