My experience has been that updating a 10-year-old netbook to Windows 10 is EASIER and CHEAPER than rebuilding the XP operating system when you factor in the value of your time.

Windows 7 key, $25
2G memory chip $25
120G SSD drive $25

I've got a 10 year old NC10 netbook running Win10 Home32 1809.
And a 13 year old Dell 5150 mini-tower running Win10 Pro64 1809.
Now, truth be told, they are NOT fast out of the gate. They boot up and then spend 30 minutes chugging away at 99% CPU usage before finally settling down. I turn them on, go make breakfast or go get a beer.
They are great shop/garage computers, because, well, I really don't care if I blow one up. The Dell 5150 has a RS-232 serial card that works with my old Radio-Shack multi-meter to record data - volts, amps, etc.

You may want to consider an upgrade to the OS on the laptop to current Win-10 rather than re-installing an out of date OS.

I need to keep Win XP for a software program. Don't want to run in some sort of virtual mode.

I have managed to get the service packs 1,2 &3 installed and Mozilla.... Seems to be working now...

Many thanks to ALL who helped. Much appreciated.

Glad it worked out for you. Hopefully, I was able to contribute something early on, but this quickly over run my self taught knowledge from the 90's. Technology has advanced so fast that without any formal education in this, it has completely lost me.

Good luck!
