Issue Details

I have lost or otherwise cannot use my Windows OS re-installation disk that was sent with my Windows PXI controller. Can NI replace this disk?


NI is not able to replace the Windows OS disk that ships with some Windows PXI controllers. However, the Windows OS for PXI controllers is no different than a normal Windows OS for a desktop PC. Because of this, if you are looking to reinstall the Windows OS, you can use any Windows OS media for the installation. If you do this, then be sure to also install the peripheral media needed for the PXI controller. 

Additional Information

If you are not able to activate the operating system on your controller, please try to activate it via phone.
