Can I install Windows XP Pro (x64) on an HP workstation with the Dell OEM disc?

I have a remote HP workstation (xw9300) that needs to be re-formatted with XP Pro x64.  It has the original serial number on the sticker on its side, but no media. I have Dell workstations in my local office and i have the Dell OEM Windows XP Pro x64 disc.  
I have to ask the remote user to take the PC to a Geeksquad for an install (yes, i have to do this).  I feel like we probably need to supply the media, but i am not sure if this will work.  Anyone know for sure, one way or the other?

thanks!
