Yes. You can t use any other OS disc to install XP. It needs to be an XP Disc. It can be either Full, Upgrade, or OEM.

So you are installing an Emachines XP disk on a non-Emachine correct? If so it might not work. You need to take it to antother pc and copy all the files to the hard drive and take some files out that are by emachines. Somewhere in the cd it has a file to check to see if its in their machine or not. If its not, usually it wont install.
