I only have the XP disc for my other computer, I didn't get one with this one. You can't use one disc on multiple machines can you?

It is possible repairing XP with another cd I think. You might have to call Microsoft for the reactivation process. Just tell them you've installed a new motherboard or something like that. and (hopefully) they will activate it for you.

If you could boot from your XP cd, you can format the drive from there and install a fresh copy of XP or whatever you'd like.
