You wont find it legally!

Go back to where you purchased you machine.

I have A DELL windows XP pro OEM disk it works for other machines but not for this one. When the Activation window comes up i input the COA number on the side and it activates fine. But when i restart computer it asks me to activate again. I spent 3 hours on the phone with microsoft yesterday and was told i not the only one experiencing this issue

If you don't get anywhere with Microsoft, then I would suggest contacting HP who might be able to provide you with a recovery disk specific to that machine:-
