reinstalling windows xp home edition onto hp mini 110-1023nr

I received a secondhand HP Mini 110-1023NR. While trying to install antivirus software, I discovered that the previous owner had deleted the Windows XP Home Edition that was factory-installed, and instead had been using a bootleg copy of Windows 7 Ultimate.

 

I want to delete the 7 and reinstall XP. I checked the files; there is no "windows.old" file from which to recover. Since it was pre-installed, I have no boot disk/USB. I do have a copy of XP from an old desktop. Can I use that, and if so, how?

See this page for XP recovery options, more than likely since W7 was installed you will need the HP recovery discs to get it XP legally installed.
