You may be asked to insert your Windows install CD


Another Option

Most of the laptop pre-installed with XP archives the content of the installation CD on the hard-disk. The location of the archive depends on the brand/company you bought the laptop from. When you first boot the laptop, it will ask you to backup the system to CD so you can recover the XP in case you need to reinstall.

If you have the hard-disk formatted, you maybe able to buy the XP from the company that you bought the laptop from and the CD is different for different models, so make sure you order the right one for you laptop. It's possible to just buy the XP CD off the shelf, but you may have to find drivers for your laptop and it sometimes maybe difficult depending on how popular the model of your laptop is.

If it's just looking for a specific system file, fonts and keyboard layout, you may be able to find them on the net. When it ask for the CD try pointing to some random directory and see what files is it looking for.

More Idea.

If you don't have a XP CD, so u have to do the following.

Enabling CTL (Complex Text Layout) on XP. (For Arabic, Thai, indic, hebrew, etc).

1) Go to control panel and click "Regional and Language Options".
2) Click the "Languages" Tab
3) enable the "Install files for complex script and right-to-left languages (including Thai)" checkbox.
4) click apply

It will prompt you for all the missing files if you don't have a XP CD. All the files are available on the net and I'm not sure about the copyright issues. I've listed the files below so you can google them and make sure that there's no copyright issues. Copy the files to one folder and point to that folder when it's looking for the missing files.
