Walmart has XP so it is good. They are all made by Microsoft and you know it's genuine then.

Nope, different drivers will load which will most likely cause the system to not boot.
Also since it is a recovery disk for another system it is against Microsoft's EULA to load it on another system.

You stated earlier your laptop was 6 - 8 years old.
That would make it a 32 bit unit.
You can use XP home or XP pro.
It does not matter.

Looking where?
With all the links we supplied you should be able to get one really easily.
Posts 76 and 77 have 4 links with XP to buy.

It's still booting the HD and not the cdrom.
Did you purchase a Xp disk or did you borrow a copied disk?
