Is the motherboard the same as the previous or an upgrade? Was this a manufactured machine or custom built? What version of Windows XP is it (More looking for Upgrade, Retail, or OEM)?

Most cases you can transfer the lic over to the new motherboard but certain OEM versions licensed to a manufacturer are nontransferable to non-replacement hardware.

Hope that helps.
