Just use the original disk and install.

If that is corrupt, send it back to Microsoft and they will send you a new copy.

A great deal of the things on Pro and Home are the same - the Explorer.exe file holds the Start Menu Bar Titles for every version of XP.

You shouldn't be copying XP anyway. But if its for backup; and a file is corrupt, then send it back and they'll give you a new one.

I didn't even know you could copy Windows XP, you would think it would have some type of anti-piracy device(knowing Microsoft, they'd do that)
Oh well...I wouldn't copy it though.I can't afford the fine.LOL

Thats what the Activation Codes are for - you're allowed to copy the CDs, as you can buy Mass-Licencing and they'll send you the stickers for extra copies with different activation codes instead of actually copies.
