How to find correct media to reinstall XP OS on Netbook

I recently installed UBUNTU 12.1 on my netbook. I know wish to return to what came with the netbook (XP). How can i find the correct media i require ? I don't have info on what version it was (PRO/HOME) but i do have the serial number for OS. Can anyone advise how i find the correct ISO to download ?

Contact the manufacturer and request a recovery CD. They will tell you what OS was originally on your netbook so if you get the iso you may just be able to sort yourself out by the time you receive the recovery media.
XP Home OEM should be what was originally installed.

Did you delete the recovery partition when you installed Ubuntu? What make of netbook is it?
