Software cannot be installed on a motherboard, it's installed on a hard drive, so there's no way to track it's whereabouts if it's just the motherboard that's been stolen.

Even if it was an entire PC that was stolen, there's still no way of tracking it's whereabouts unless the owner installed tracking software on it (even then the thief could remove the tracking software by reformatting the hard drive or removing the hard drive and installing a new one).

✔ Best Answer
Some laptops do have anti-theft software built into the CMOS, one such technology is called LoJack. It's possible that some desktop motherboards have this too. However you would have had to set it up before the device was stolen. There is nothing you can do after it has been stolen.
