You must have the same disk or a new disk that has never been used for an install. At the end of the re-install, you will have to activate the software. If you use a different disk, the activation codes won't match. It is possible that you could activate by phone and convince Microsoft to give you a new activation code, but I wouldn't count on that happening.

I don't understand your cord problem. It only takes three to hook up a cd drive and all three are very different. As such it should be obvious where each goes. I don't see how a cat could get them out of the drive. Are you talking about cords that plug into the back of the computer and not inside. Those too would all be different
