Can I rapair XP home with a XP pro cd?

I have my brothers computer here, it is in a reboot loop. Whatever option I try it just reboots.

Im guessing that a repair to windows might work.
However the computer has XP home on it but I only have a XP pro cd, will it be ok.

Also I do not have his XP licence number, will I need it?

I do have a new unused XP pro licence number which I bought for my old machine but bought a new computer instead, as a last resort I could use this and put pro on his computer but I am reluctant as I dont want to waste it.

A repair is doubtful.

However, an upgrade might just work.

Repair NO, No 100%
