OK that would answer for a lot right now as i have rarely seen a burned copy of a OS work correctly.
Is the reg key installed on his system also?

Well, I'm saying burned copy; but, I'm not sure exactly what he used. But, I know he has a registration key installed. I don't have a CD in hand right now. So, at this point, there's nothing else you can suggest?

Without a Genuine Microsoft XP installation cd there is no way to guarantee the OS is working correctly.
The problem is if he installed that reg key on another system before yours then it will do no good to keep going as the installation is against Microsoft's EULA.
The reg key can only be installed on one system. If it is presently on his system then you would have to purchase a new key at the least if not a new copy of XP with a reg key.
