Scratched xp disk RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ok, this may sound like i am trying to steal a copy of windows, but i can prove that i already own it, but there is one problem....my cd is too scratched, after it copies the setup files, it reboots and runs setup but it says something like the cd is unreadable, or it cant get a certain file.

    anyways, i am not going to pay for another one, since really the only thing that is worth anything is the key, which i still have. i just need to know where i can get a replacement, or download it or something.

    if this is in the wrong place just let me know, thx for any help!!!

  • In the past I've used toothpaste, a tip I got from a local Pc shop,  rubbing it back and forth (not in a circular motion) to recover some disks. Provided its not too badly scratched it might work
