No, you will need to purchase an XP disc that is the EXACT same type as the one you had. In other words, you need to purchase an upgrade, full, OEM, or volume license disc depending on your original disc.

Also, if you need an OEM disc then you need to be very specific because they will often only install on a limited type of PC and hardware.
