friend is awaiting his XP cd complete with license code to reinstall XP on to his machine;(machine has previously had XP on it);am I correct in assuming that when the cd is put into the machine it should run and load XP automatically? and what of the Service packs?
thanks in advance for helpful input::))

He will then need to install Windows Updates but probably best to have AVG on a USB drive or similar and install before connecting to the internet.
