WinXP Activation Problems

My friend has a PC with Windows XP Proffesional which needed to have the OS repaired. His original XP was illegal so we purchased a sealed and unused on ebay. During the repair we have to enter the activation code - it will not accept the code from the new XP pack. Have I been had?
