go buy a copy of XP if your laptop didnt come with it. Most should have some cd/dvd from the vendor to restore it to the factory set up.

Well if im trying to figure out how to get it back on my laptop then that means that it came with it. I need the software and i can worry about the key later.

It should have the license sticker on the bottom of the laptop if it wasn't removed. You can download a complete copy of XP off any file sharing community and it will work fine if you can come up with the license. Most of the XP image files have all the necessary boot files if you burn the whole image to a cd.
