Default XP boot disc

I have built a PC and I have a copy of XP on my old HD. I still have the CD key sticker on my old PC but i cant find the disc.

So is it possible to make an install disc from another PC with XP and then install it on my PC using my old key.

Cheers

No. You are not supposed to use XP like that. Having a new PC like that negates the EULA since it is a new PC.

Technically you have to buy a new version of XP.

But you can do it. But you cant do it the way you want to. There is no way to make a bootable install disc from a XP already isntalled on a PC.
