Legit CD key, No disk RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a legit CD key on the back of my system but no disk. The CD key is for a "Windows xp home - Emachine" My friend has a Windows home CD. Can i install his CD onto my system and use my CD key thats on the back of the system?

    I read someone did this and used the CD key for that disk. Then when i came to activate it they called and used the CD key on the back of the system.

    Iv called them and they told me the warranty is up and they only keep disks from 3 years back. So theres no way to get a recovery disk. Is there a way to call microsoft with the key on my computer explaining ?
