If his computer came without any CDs, then most likely it had recovery partition, and it was supposed to be used to restore his computer.
Your CDs are OEM XP version?
I don't understand why installation would ask for SP2. Were all partitions removed before formatting?

    my friends hard drive had the system restore but it wouldnt work

    i kept getting blue screened

    and i put media center on it it worked but i basically got a blank screen with a trash can

    and the internet wouldnt work either

    so i used my old hard drive and put it in and it worked fine except for the part where i dont get internet...

    What's the situation in Device Manager? Any errors?
    Also...
    Download, and install Everest: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4181.html
    Open it, click Computer, then Summary.
    In upper menu, go Report>Quick Report-Summary
    Save it in text file, and paste it in your next post.
    Don't include anything under line Debug - PCI

      It's not clear.
      Your friend's computer has his old HD in, or yours?
      I understand, you can't download anything, but you can use CD, or flash drive.
      What about Device Manager situation?

          all my "other devices" have yellow questions mark icons besides them, so i'm assuming the drivers are missing for them being the errors i was looking for

            That's why, I asked before, if motherboard drivers were installed.
            I asked to post Everest report to see what components are there, including motherboard, unless you have an access to the drivers.

            If you went to my link, THAT Everest version is free. Check again.
