well not exactly the same but if it is a recovery c.d it will re image your hardrive as if you just bought it,

if it is a vista c.d then it will have formatting capabilites but you will have to look for drivers

ummmm are you asking if you put the recovery c.d will it add drivers to your current XP .... ? No it wont if you put that it all it will do again is completely re image your comp wo when it came out of the shop,

do you need drivers ??? then download everest home edition here http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4181.html

and post your mothernboard make and model , and anything else you have extra e.g independant sound card independant graphics card / network card.
