XP install question

So a friend saddled me with his dead PC and I’m trying to resuscitate. His hard drive shot craps and I’ve replaced it, but I’m lacking the proper media for an XP Home install because he lost his original XP Home disk. I do have his XP serial number from a sticker on the side of the machine. I also have my own XP Pro media from my PC. Are the two compatible or do I need to scrounge up an XP Home ISO from the darker corners of the internet?

They’re different keys.

You’ll need an XP Home CD.
