Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

OEM CDs are not archived in the FTP (they're pretty much the same thing as the original OS but with a bunch of drivers and applications, and those drivers can be installed after a clean install of the original OS, through the manufacturer website). This material is kinda rare to find, but if that is what it was supplied with your computer, maybe you can try request it to HP, check this website for information.

Actually, many OEM CDs contain abandonware, as well as sample music and wallpapers which can't be found on the internet.
Many drivers for older systems can't be downloaded from the manufacturer, and OEM CDs eliminate the need to hunt for them (I know this this because HP delisted my '06 desktop, so I can't view any drivers, manuals, or specs). The included drivers are also verified to work with the specific hardware of the computer, while different versions of a generic driver might not work correctly.

I've seen staff say that OEM recovery software, if old enough and not easily available, would be acceptable. However, in this case, the english version of the restore disc is easily downloadable, and betaarchive archives english software.
Hopefully, if someone has a copy of the software OP is looking for they could share it somewhere else and link it here.

You can find the English version here: https://archive.org/search.php?query=hp%20windows%20xp%20sp2
I'd give the disc a try, you might be able to set the language to Spanish during/after setup.

You can't change the language of Windows XP if it's not English Professional.

In rare cases yes, and in old OSes mostly (i.e Windows 9x and older).

Again, depends on the age. Many newer OEM discs are just regular discs with a custom OEM logo on the disc, or slightly modified installers.

It's always a per case-by-case evaluation, but by default we won't accept any OEMs newer than Win9x. And we archive software in all languages, not only English.
