If it's an HP, you've probably got a hidden recovery partition. Go to the HP support site and find out how to access the partition for your model, and what your recovery options are. There are some recovery partitions that have a means of creating an OEM XP installation disk. And there are some that only perform a destructive recovery, which wipes out all your files and apps you've installed, and puts the machine back into as-shipped condition.

If you use a different XP disk, it has to be one that is not in use, that is, not installed on another computer.

And what I'm coming to is that you probably need to do a repair/reinstall of XP.
