If your copy of XP is retail, then you can certainly reactivate that copy on the replacement motherboard, just as you could if you wiped the old computer and built a new one to replace it. If it's OEM, as I understand it, only a direct replacement motherboard can be re-activated, as it actually is the same computer.
