We could answer that if we knew what was on the computer in your first post.

Can you confirm it is XP Home?

Your post above is kind of vague without a link, it looks like it might be an EBay listing?

Howdy derekimo,
Greg mentioned what I would need for an old HP XT858 desktop. I was just wondering if this matches his description??? Yes I believe it is XP Home.
Thanks for your time!!!

Hi Glenn,

Is this the one you bought?

Windows XP Home Edition SATA Drivers re Install Disc | eBay

It doesn't mention OEM but it does infer that it is with these words,

You can always message the seller on eBay to find out for sure, but I agree it looks like OEM by what description says. Remember that unlike Vista/Win7/Win8 it must be an OEM channel installer to reinstall Factory OEM XP.
