The XP SP2 disk would perform a repair installation, but the XP installation would require the new key from the XP disk and require activation.

You may be required to put in the key from the disk you used to repair XP with and activate, yes. Maybe not in all instances, but it may be required yes.

If the Service pack 2 disk is the same distribution (Retail, upgrade, OEM, VLK) then the same key will work fine. If they are different, then badge is correct.

Is this a big OEM machine or a homebrew?
