Contact the manufacturer of your net book and see if they have a way that you could download it..

Where did you find the winnit32.exe before and why do you need to do it again?

Have you tried tapping F10 key repeatedly on startup.

Hi thanks for replying. yes i just tried again tapping f10 repeatedly nothing happens. Last time when i had the pre installed windows there was the winnit32.exe file when i used that to reinstall windows to the version i have now, now it is not there and have no way to re install windows because my netbook doesnt have a cd drive

and i need to reinstall because i when i reinstalled windows i couldnt put the new version of windows onto the C drive because it is protected or something so i saw that there was a partition of 2.9 gb on the C drive itself so i installed windows onto that partition which was fine it left me with the main parition with over 100gb but now i am experiencing severe problems because every half an hour i get a message saying i have very little drive space left on the 2.9 gb partition and when i checked it is staying at about 1mb to 500kb of free space, ive tried to copy the windows folder onto the main partition without success as after copying a few folders it stops saying i cannot move due to protected files or files are in use, i am now at the stage of pulling my hair out because i cannot afford to go to pc world and get them to reinstall the pre installed windows onto my computer for 35 there must be something i can do please help any info you need i will stay logged in checking this post.

thanks again

You probably have erased any recovery partition if it had one.

You might be able to expand the partition that the Operating system is on.

Go Start>>Right click My Computer and choose Manage then on the left Disk Management
Right click on th partition with the Operating System on it and see what option you have.

Understood...

Try this free program and see if you can adjust the Partition size with the Operating System on it.

Beaware I have never used this program myself....I use Disk Director from Acronis which isn't free.

I have used Easus and it is very easy to use. I suggest that before you do anything, if you have any data on the net book you want to keep, save it first.

Well done!!!....but remember if you have problems again you have no backup disc.......so I would either think about a backup disc or a program that will backup the Hard drive Operating System as-well....I use Acronis True Image.
