Windows OEM ISO for X11-45376 - Toshiba Laptop RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am rebuilding a laptop for someone that has a genuine sticker on the laptop with a key, but I can't find anywhere to download the OEM ISO file for Windows XP Media Center 2005 edition.  The ISO number is X11-45376 but i can not find anywhere on the Micorosoft site, or the Toshiba site to be able to download or even get a physical media for the OS.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • Windows XP Media Center went out of support some time ago (April this year) - and there never were legal downloads available.

    There used to be a number of 'safe' torrents that you could use - but I don't know if they still exist (and they require extreme caution in checking the disks first anyhow).

    I really cannot recommend that anyone install XP now, but appreciate that some have very little choice.

    No - I do not work for Microsoft, or any of its contractors.
