That mini came with XP installed like you stated.You will need an XP disc to format and install to restore it back to factory settings.You will need a valid XP license also.Is there still an XP license on the bottom of the mini?

You will have to find an XP install disc that matches your sticker : Home , Pro etc.

This was a promotional mini for signing up for cable service a while back but there is no product key...very strange. Just proof of certificate of authenticity sticker and product: compaq mini and serial #.
