I need to re-install MS Office 2007 Pro Upgrade (Retail) and MS keeps asking for my original Office XP disk. Over time both disk 1 and disk 2 are cracked from the spindle hole nearly to the edge and the installer won't recognize them. Is there anywhere that I can d/l the Office XP .CAB files so I can complete my install? Actually it can be the .CABs from Office 2000 or XP, or MS Works 6.0 - 10..

I can't think of anywhere to get that ISO, but just as a caution..do NOT put those disks in a drive again. Even a tiny crack in a disk can lead to shattering inside the drive as it spins up. And you'd almost certainly have to get a new drive.

Yes, I've heard and seen this.

Yup and thanks.. the disks have already been destroyed and trashed..
Btw, I found a legit copy w/ prod key and COA on Ebay for $17 shipped.
