There should be a product key on the bottom. As long as there is you can just download a copy of XP from digitalriver.com and use that key. Burn the iso file downloaded on to a disc and boot to the disc and follow the prompts to install XP.
You will need to get hold of a xp bootable disk, change the primary boot to the cd/dvd-rom and run the disk.
If you cant get hold of a xp disk get Utorrent and torrent sites to get what you are looking for, it is a good download program to download disk images(iso's). Using your burning software burn yourself a copy, it'll allways come in handy.
Format your machine to its orignial OS (XP Home). There are some limitations that some of machine wont able to carry. The XP Professional might not compatible with your machine. That's why you encouter hang-up from your machine.
This will happens due to 2 reasons
1. Your memory is low.
2. Your system is infected with malware/spyware.
Check your CPU utilization in task manager. Should not utilize 100%.
For this you need to download Antimalware like malwarebytes and clean the entire system.
Or Have to increase the RAM.
Hope this will be usefull
