I should mention that Microsoft does not always follow a logical path (as if they ever have). And based on that thought, there may be a difference between OEM and PRO, and whether or not your working with a site license. I tend to forget about the licensing issues because I always work with site or volume licensing. The issue would be with the "activation" of the OS. I wouldn't think you'd have to activate the OS by simply switching the motherboard, but leave it to MS to find a way to charge you twice for the same product.

There ought to be a law against it! ;-0
