The most simple solution would be to purchase/borrow a cd drive - either internal or external. There are other solutions you can do without doing this though.
One option is to install XP from a flash drive. It is not a very simple process, but it does work. You can get a lot of information form the sticky posts at this forums:

I hope this information helps. Good luck.

Check in system partition see if there is recovery partition there? if so, you might need that to reinstall system back to manufacturing date.
