If you installed service packs, you may need that version of XP, too, rather than the one that came with your machine. You should have a recovery CD that you made when the machine was new, or there may still be that option in your Start menu.

Depending what format the files are in on your recovery partition (which is your CD-substitute), you may be able to install by directing the installer there.

Did you check the optional Windows Update components? At least in Vista and 7, they are available there, but I don't know about an OS as old as XP.

You may need to purchase an XP version recovery disk set from the manufacturer.
