|As they are different motherboards (even though they are from |
the same series of PCs), you can't just swap them over and
expect Windows to work - the usual thing to do is to get a
Windows XP disk and carry out a repair installation, though you
may still have problems activating as a change of motherboard is
considered to be a new machine.
