Need Fujitsu-Siemens XP Home OEM Recovery CD
Posted on 2012-09-14
I recently replaced a Power Supply Unit in a Fujitsu-Siemens Scaleo P desktop PC for a guy. It died on him at the worst timing while he was half way through a recovery installation (the type that wipes the drive and restores the "factory image") because it had seemingly been "playing up" and he felt it might be a software issue. Maybe it was a Windows issue, but the PSU was certainly dead. I did a fresh install to finish the job and gave him back the old PSU in the box for the new one. I stuck the Recovery CD in a sleeve and slid it down into the box, and pointed it out to him when I gave it to him and took his money (not a lot, because I work with him).
This morning he informed me that he was going to install the sound card driver from the CD but suddenly remembered with horror that it was still in the box when he threw the old dead power supply in the trash. Now he is worried that if he needs to reinstall Windows he is screwed.
I haven't yet contacted Fujitsu-Siemens UK because I'm pretty sure they won't have any XP recovery CDs left now, and I was just wondering whether (before resorting to eBay, Torrent sites, or other sites that will charge for a CD image or CD), anybody out there (preferably UK-based) might have one kicking around that I could borrow, buy or get a copy of.
In case anybody starts shouting about licensing, piracy, or illegal copies, this Desktop has a legit COA sticker and that's what provides the licence. Windows can be reinstalled from a home-burned backup copy, the setup files on a hard/flash drive, etc, so as far as I am aware what I'm asking isn't illegal.
I took a note of the details of the COA and of the CD when I first ejected it from the dead PC, and I'm cursing myself now for not burning a backup copy for him before I gave it back.

Any help in this respect would be appreciated.
