Unfortunately, you will need to purchase another operating system disc, even though you have the product key. That key is assigned to the disc that came with the machine. Why exactly did the Xp disc of your father's not work?

Based from the error message you're getting it sounds to me that your problem there is not software related but is more hardware in nature.Since you're getting a message "disk read error occurred IDE#0" this pertains to a problem with the hard drive itself. It's possible that your hard drive developed bad sectors or errors on the disc itself.
So to be sure I would recommend that you run the hardware diagnostics for your laptop computer especially the one for the hard drive since you're getting this message. If the hard drive fails the test or any other part fails in the test, contact your techsupport and ask for replacement parts if your PC is still under warranty. Otherwise you may have to buy parts for your laptop.
If the hard drive tests passed and all the other hardware tests also passed then you may proceed to troubeshoot the software using the Windows XP Home CD. Boot from the WinXP Home CD, and you get to the setup screen, choose "R" for recovery console and then on the prompt type "CHKDSK /R" let it run, it may take a while. afterwards it will bring you back to the prompt then type EXIT and it will reboot the system, see if that fixes the problem. Worst case scenario you may have to format then reinstall Windows XP again to fix this problem.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: bios batt
if you leave it long enough does it boot ?
press F2 and go through the settings and check for something like "display boot menu" or similiar.
remember to save your settings upon exiting
