Have key, but no CD RRS feed

  • Question

  • I seem to have lost the instalation CD for XP that came with my Dell.  However, I still have the product key which is on a sticker attached to my computer.  Can I use my brother's XP CD with my key?

  • No.  You'll have to contact Dell for a replacement.

  • Thanks everyone for all the help - quite the mixed bag of replies!  I called Dell and they are sending me a replacement CD at no charge... despite my computer being 4 years old
