    Am I able to use his XP disc to load boot camp, or will I get flagged?

    Thanks.

    Almost certainly, you are not legally permitted to install that specific XP on more than one machine. Windows authentication could possible catch you up here.

    You will get flagged, but if you purchase a new serial number from Microsoft, you'll be fine.

    The same thing as a new copy of Windows. There is no discount.
