Now it all does make sense what is going on.

Not only does it have to be the right version but it has to be a OEM and not a full Retail version
We could use it to reload the system and use her key code to activate it with no problem.
I myself would suggest contacting the seller and asking for either the correct recovery disks or for a refund based on the fact there is no way it can work.
Not only are the manufacturers of the system different but the make and model of every system is different within each manufacturer. They require completely different drivers for each system. This in itself would make it impossible to load the system correctly.

The difference is a OEM will not come with any documentation and is used for system builders most of the time.

Her system didn't have XP Pro originally did it?

First is the XP Pro loaded on any other system right now?

First reason is because it is loaded on another system right now.
Second reason the reg key on her system will not work for that version since they are different versions.
Third the reg key for your Pro version is already on the older system and therefor cannot be used on her system since it is registered to you and to your older system.
This is why I suggested borrowing a OEM version of the same OS from someone and using her reg key you can format and reload her system. That would make the installation legal and in reality everything should work fine then.
Now with all that being said and you have tried several installs I am beginning to suspect maybe a dirty laser on the optical drive.
Forget the disks she bought they are useless for you.
