Finalise rebuild with XP but no OS Disc.

  [email protected] 12:32 10 Jan 2007

I have just finished rebuilding a PC with spare bits. It had a dead mobo. The owner did not have an XP installation disc. I noted the OS Key from the HDD which I placed into another PC for that reason, and also to save the few images which were important. Nothing else was. I successfully installed and activated XP from a generic XP disc which belongs to one of my other PC's. It was a complete fresh install and the PC is now stable and has been running OK for a few days. The problem is this:
I am getting near the point where I want to give the PC back as a going concern for her daughter [little surprise as they all still think it is dead ;-)], but what to do about the absence of the disc if they ever need to do an SFC /SCANNOW and it asks for it? Is there some way I can install the disc again into a partition on the HDD and get Windows to look there instead of the CD tray? Thanks.
