Default XP Pro MPC pc

I purchased a lot of equipment and software at an auction and I have 5 XP pro discs that were originally intended to be sold with mpc pc's. They are original and unopened. Can these be installed on any computer?

I should add these do not have the certificates of authenticity. Presumably those are on the computers that originally had the software activated. I do have the authentication numbers though.
These computers were destroyed in a strip mall fire when the sprinklers came on inside the shop and soaked everything.

Yeah; they'll all work well. Probably best to seel them though; they're worth a reasonable amount of money,

I should point out these are OEM discs. Apparently I cannot use them.

You can use them; but what is the point in using 5? Sell them.
