Lost WinXP Home CD and have no COA RRS feed

  • Question

  • I built my computer a couple of years back, and I was stupid and didn't take my COA off the case when I recently bought a new case. I still have my key (after getting it with Product Key Explorer) but I don't have the CD anymore. I checked the order form for a way to get the CD back, but I need my COA for that. So I have a couple of questions.

    1. Can I use a friend's WinXP Home CD with my serial number and it install correctly?

    2. If not, how can I get a replacement CD without having to buy a completely new license?
