Default Format CP w/out Windows disk. Please help

I used to format my CP everyyear to totally clean it out and reinstall everything.

problem is that I built my CP and used Windows XP Pro. I do not have that disk anymore. is there any way to reformat and wipe it out without my Windows XP Pro disk?

Thanks for reading.

as long as you have a legal xp pro key i dont see the harm in downloading the torrent and burning it to a cd, then just using the key to install it.

Thanks for the replies. I have my key number. I read somewhere where I can get into a file and burn the data to disk but some had problems becuase they were prompted to insert disk 2 and there was not one.
