For whatever it may be worth, I recently had to rebuild one of my machines with a new motherboard and new hard drive, both completely different from what was in the box before. I installed Windows XP Pro, and expected to have to call Microsoft to verify the change when I went through the activation process. I had no problem at all, Windows XP just activated using the wizard and no questions asked. I also had to reinstall Office XP Pro, on a totally different machine, and, again, no problems came up when activating the software.
