Some computers like my mom's old one or my netbook did not come come with a CD. You can reinstall windows straight from the harddrive (if I can remember correctly) . All you need to do is follow the instruction on how to do it.
Unfortunately, we had a laptop where my son completely wiped everything to install linux. I tried reinstalling windows but it is completely gone. It does not matter anyway bwcause it is his laptop so he does whatever he want with it.i think I will google for install disk. But they may not have it.
