    The legal situation is a single copy of XP may only be installed on one computer at a time.

    Load your copy of XP and register it. If it is in use by someone else, they will refuse to register it.

    Good luck.

    what is the make, model and model number of the pc and I can get an online user guide for you to view or download, and it will help you get drivers and install your os.
