Thanks for all the replies.

The guy who made the pc called us last night advising me to try a code from another pc he had. 
Did it online and all activated fine.  :D
Glad to hear you managed to get things sorted.

HP:
I can only go by my own experiences of using a XP OEM disc from one PC to another on at least three separate occasions without any problem.
Who knows, maybe on the one occasion I did have to ring MS I must have spoken to a very compassionate lady.

@oldfogy - just because it works doesn't make it legal.  ;)
Some OEM CD's also check the BIOS and won't run at all on the wrong hardware, but not all by any means.
