Want to re-install XP with replacement motherboard RRS feed

  • Question

  • I purchased and installed an OEM copy of XP-Pro on my wife's system. I built her computer. The motherboard/CPU has died, will not boot to even to the BIOS. All other components of her system still work just fine. Her system used an ASUS A7N8X-X motherboard with a AMD Sempron 2400+ CPU. I have available to me a QDI motherboard/Intel Pentiium 4 system. Socket 478 3.0 Ghz. If I use all the parts from the original system can I re-use my copy of XP? If so, how do I go about it? I want to use the hard-drive that she was using since it has all her programs on it. Any help will be appreciated. I have Googled the problem, but have not found any answers that relate directly to my situation.
