✔ Best Answer
Borrowing one is your best option. It doesn't need to be the same brand oem, just as long as it is an actual XP disk and not an oem recovery disk. Alternatively check on EBay as you often find just the disk being sold cheaply and I've also seen 'all-in-one' recovery disks that have a full copy of the XP on them for only a few pounds.

I have used other cd's and then changed the key to the correct number. Problem is that your system came with an OEM copy. They don't authenticate to the MS system.

Contact the company that made the computer and see if they offer a low cost replacement media.
