Re: Swapping MBs on XP--reinstall ?

  1. There is no single answer to this question (can you move an installed
    copy of Windows from one motherboard to another). It depends on way too
    many variables, and the fact that it's Intel to Intel (e.g. CPU &
    chipset) doesn't really say much, because there are so many Intel
    chipsets and configurations. Really, the only way to find out is to try
    it, although a Repair install should be possible (but those sometimes
    "clobber" a lot more things than one would think).
