AFAIK, no version of Windows XP was available for download (for retail users, at least) from Microsoft. You had to buy the actual media (or a computer with the OS pre-installed) or subscribe to a Microsoft service such as MSDN in order to have access to the OS iso files. Note that OEMs are required, as a condition of their license from Microsoft, to supply the end users of their products with some means to reinstall a pre-installed operating system. Early on, OEMs satisfied this requirement by providing actual media of some sort. Then they decided to save a few pennies by eliminating the CDs and instead including a hidden 'restore partition' on the hard drive.
