All you really need is the windows code for the machine it is to installed on, a copy of in your case XP Home, the drivers for the motherboard from the motherboard manufacturer and the drivers for graphics, sound, modem and printer etc.
Depending on what is wrong with the PC you might get away with a repair and not have to reinstall anything. For that all you need is the windows disk.
