Reinstall WInXP on new HDD. Lost original recovery CD

I need to install Win XP on a new 80 GB HD.  I have lost the original cd's. Is there a way to disable the Intel chipset that prevents installs without the factory CD's?

Anthonyjt, welcome to the forum,

 

it would be helpful if you could post which ThinkPad you have, even better post the Type and Model Number this will help members to help you. If it ends in CTO please provide some details about the ThinkPad. Please do NOT post your s/n.

 

Thanks

Andy

Nothing prevents installing from factory CDs, or any CDs/DVDs for that fact...

Cheers,
