    You can't just download Windows XP onto your machine, because it is machine dependant and needs to be registered online with Microsoft to function.

    Your best bet is to buy a new or unregistered version off eBay, and then you'll need to install it and download over a 100 updates.

    I don't think you've read that link properly.

    There's loads of places you can download the ISO on line which you can then burn to a DVD or make a bootable USB for.

    Problem will be the product code and activation.

    Again, plenty on-line if you look, but not sure I would trust them...

    Last comment... I have mongoose running on windos 7. the trick is that you ned the 32 bit version, not the 64 bit version.

    With XP you won't need to put in the code (just skip it) or activate it as you'll be resetting the date each time you start windows so it will stay in the trial mode.
