Thread Starter 
Does anybody have a spare copy of Windows XP Media Center Edition they would like to sell?

Trying to restore an old laptop for a friend but it has no recovery discs or partition.

Is the license key still present on the bottom of the computer? If so you can order an OEM install disk for relatively cheap.

I will say that this kind of stuff is kinda touchy on OCN, I am giving you advice that is legal. Use your own discretion on how you go about doing this.

At which point I can only suggest that you check around eBay, I believe I saw MCE 2005 for about $22, ships from Canada though, which wouldn't work for you. I say check out the popular UK resale sites and see what you come up with.
