Anyone have any trusted sites for downloading windows xp?
The answer is probably "no". Microsoft don't have public download links anymore and any other source these days would probably be fairly unofficial (/breaking the EULA/illegal/YMMV), so not particularly trustworthy. I'm sure there are some links available, but I'd be careful and try to at least use a checksum from a trustworthy source to check the download.
Alternatively you could see if someone trustworthy will transfer the file to you. 500MB or so isn't huge in these days of fibre. Or you could see if you can hunt down a physical disk for next to nothing, maybe on the marketplace here? I'm sure a lot of techy types have a few hanging around gathering dust.
Which version? I have an ISO for Home and for Pro (I've slipstreamed the updates in).
Doesn't really matter. I was trying to avoid buying due to it being a work project (off the books) so I might try windows7 first and hope the programs work.
