    My Nephew screwed up his computer, then his roomate installed xp home
    edition from his HP laptop CD's.

    He asked me to try and resurrect Win XP MCE. The manual from HP says
    there is a recovery partition, but when I look in computermanagement it
    shows the 120gb HD formated to 111gb and nothing left over (maybe 8mb).
    Best Buy didn't give him any CD's from Microsoft when he bought it
    over a year ago.

    There is a COA sticker on the side, so all I need is a boot MCE CD.

    Any suggestions?

    Turn this problem back over to the owner IMHO.

    Can't do that. He is completely computer illiterate. But one hell of
    a cabinet maker.
    Looks like I will be ordering recovery disks from HP. Thank You, Joe
