Windows XP Honme Edition with CD Key but without CD RRS feed

  • Question

  • Welcome,

    So, I faced the problem of reinstalling OEM Windows XP Home Edition on old Acer laptop,

    The problem is the user of the laptop doesn't owe any CD with windows but The owner got the CD Key for his original OEM windows that its been on the laptop since the beginning...

    My question is, if I borrow any Windows XP Home Edition CD and use the OEM CD Key will it work out by any chance and CD Key will work?

    Sorry for kind of newbie question but yeah I would prefer to check on forum before trying anything cause then laptop would be useless.

    Thanks for any help guys! Much appreciated!

    Kind Regards,
