HP can take their recovery system else where
If it is custom built, you only need to know the devices' names and brands and get their drivers from their websites. But before installing any drivers, make sure you install the motherboard's chipset's drivers. Very important to avoid possible compatibilities issues specially with video cards.
Don't worry about it, its easy.
Windows XP has many corporate key's scattered around so it is easy to get original copies. Not sure about its legality tho.
Lol, I like how you think, bro.
Anyways, you guys are such a big help!! I appreciate this so much!
Pretty busy today, not sure when I'm going to go ahead with this but hopefully it will be sometime this week..
Again, thanks so much to all of you!
