The restore disc will probably only work on the computer it was designed for, because they are normally set to the hardware. So you might need to buy a new OS.

Agreed, cheapest option would be XP Pro Academic Upgrade

no, cheapest option would be a free OS.
that may be the cheapest win xp (which he probably is looking for) but it's not the cheapest OS.
