xp home fails to boot. There is no access to safe mode with F8. There is no xp home disc (lost)(students)but we know the original product key.
Can I use a copy of xp pro to boot up and find/correct the problem using recovery consule and use the original xp home product key when it prompts for a key?

Your mixing two things
Yes you can boot from pro disk and use recovery console to check the disk fix mbr etc.

No you cannot do a Home repair install from a pro disk and use the key.
