Actually Microsoft licenses are that if you bought XP and have it installed on Machine A and then you go and by a Machine B and install on that one then its illegal. However if you are just replacing hardware in Machine A and then it is fine as you will just be reinstalling the OS. Its not deemed as "a new machine".
