If you had told me it was a Dell or other name I'd have an answer for you. Those keys are for that maker's issue of this OS. Those keys rarely work with the retail XP CDs you may have. So rarely that I know better.
I'm trying to repair a windows xp installation
The product key on the actual computer isn't working. I think that means that the version of Windows that is installed isn't the same one it came with. The version of windows that is seemingly different, the one I'm repairing with, it's product key isn't working either. (I checked it on the CD on another PC)
How do I go about repairing/doing a brand new install of windows when the product key found on the disc doesn't even work for said disc?
... All the codes I've tried should work. The Key found on the PC doesn't work, and the Key found on the disc I'm repairing with doesn't work either. I really don't get it at this point.......
