Did you try the steps I wrote out to boot the CD correctly?

Are you getting a prompt to "Press any key to boot CD" after setting CD drive to boot first in BIOS or using one-time BIOS boot menu key?

If your friend gave you a legitimate retail XP Product Key then you don't need to buy another copy of XP, just locate an installer for that version.
