What XP SP2 CD? All OEM computers including Acer never comes with native Windows XP installation CD. All they provided is a OEM restore CD or DVD.

In general that's true, but I have an HP Vectra with both XP Pro SP2 install CD and restore CD. I recently bought (for a friend) a Compaq desktop with XP Pro SP2 install CD. The HP has a hidden partiion, so the restore CD is provided to recreate that also if it's damaged in some way.
