Some time ago, I read an article (cant remember where) that if you replace a motherboard on a system with win xp (either version), that the system does not run, and some sort of registration has to be done - with one PC, thats hard - has anyone heard of this, or can a mother board be simply replaced with existing peripherals (assuming RAM etc functions with new board).....

Hi, It is easy to reactivate your WIN XP after your upgrade. Cheers, Bill

Have just done such a move. After transferring all hardware booted up as normal, it searched for various drivers and the only one needed was for a USB connection to a particular application.
