Please Consider this Question!
Where does the licensed Operating System reside. On the Hard Disk Drive or on the Motherboard?
Of course on the Hard Disk!
Therefore if you do change any Major Component, and XP requires to be re-installed, MS is obligated to re-active your Software.
There is no issue of legalities - the legal issues of licensing comes into play only if YOU WANT to install your XP onto another Hard Drive and run two or more machines simulataneously.
This is the good oil from Microsoft some months ago, as I was faced with this actual situation for a corporate client.
And thank you for taking the time to read my comments
