    Need WindowsXP Pro recovery disks for Compaq nx7400

    Need WindowsXP Pro recovery disks for Compaq nx7400 4th Jan 18 at 12:50 PM
    Product Name: HP Compaq nx7400 Notebook PC
    Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP (64-bit)
    Hello to anyone reading. I'm in a lot of pain searching for the recovery disks for a clients laptop which is a Compaq nx7400 that runs (or used to run) a preinstalled Windows XP Professional preinstalled by HP.

    Windows product code is: 375051-001

    License code is: 80045-576-124-264

    The disk code is: X12-51822

    Windows serial number is of course not necessary to be displayed here but given the fact that my attempts of installing other windows XP professionals failed on licensing I am begging for someones help to help me out with an image of the original disks (if there are any out there).

    I would expect I'd find them on the support site for download but I wasn't that lucky.



    So, if anyone can help with original installation disks of Windows XP Professional HP with the code X12-51822 I would be gratefull.

    Perhaps you are just trying to install XP and continue to get updates

    The devices targeted for XPe have included automatic teller machines, arcade games, slot machines, cash registers, industrial robotics, thin clients, set-top boxes, network attached storage (NAS), time clocks, navigation devices, railroad locomotives, etc.[46] Custom versions of the OS can be deployed onto anything but a full-fledged PC; even though XPe supports the same hardware that XP Professional supports (x86 architecture), licensing restrictions prevent it from being deployed on to standard PCs.

    The laptop has this details:
    Product: Compaq nx7400
    sn: CNU70421CM
    pn: RH390EA#ABB
    service tag: Cnx7400FFUT5500W580XCh51Pa EURO

    The x12 number does not signify XPe

    Just do a Google search on the ,whole of the X number and if you look at images then there are examples of normal XP Pro labels with that identifier

    I believe that it just identifies it as XP Pro
    The number above the product key probably gives the actual version.

    Online activation of XP COA has long since been blocked.

    Here is an original MSDN image if you need one; en_windows_xp_pro_64bit.iso

    If you do have problems using the media above together with the key on the COA(it could fail phone activation because SP2 is not present), you can try this media containing SP2; CRMPX_EN.iso

    Clean install from Boot of course.
