Default Reinstall XP

XP Pro upgrade disk. Hard drive failing. How do I reinstall XP Pro on new hard drive when I only have the upgrade disk? I no longer have any old copies of windows.
Thanks Deac

You cant. You need an older copy of windows or a full install cd of XP. Is this a home upgrade or pro?
