It probably wouldn't work.
You can only transfer a hard disk to another computer and expect it to work if the hardware is very close. Otherwise the drivers will be wrong and will not work.

Installing an older Operating System in a Virtual PC Environment would be easier, you will have various driver, memory errors etcetera om a modern hardware..

Check my comments on that here:

and the link to a previous thread.

I mentioned there about copying the files to the hard drive before moving it to the new motherboard. It's possible the necessary files were already copied to the drive so you might want to check to see if that's the case with yours.
