Question about Microsoft Computers & Internet
Well... it's not exactly the most legal way of doing things, but in your case there doesn't seem to be one. So: on your PC there should be an adhesive with Windows XP's original product key. It's the same bulk XP OEM version, I don't expect Aries to have had a specific OEM version such as Dell, Acer or HP. So if you can get your hands on any XP OEM disk, that will be good and your PK will be accepted. Your license is bound to the adhesive and the PC system hardware, not the physical CD.
Legal problems might arise in those countries where the license is bound to the hardware "assembly" (France I think, but not sure). In such cases the installation of course works, but you're in violation of the license even if you have the proof of purchase and receipts (fiscal problem, not technical).
