XP re/activate

ASUS A7V266-E MOBO fried last week.
For speed !! bought a cheap eagletec micro atx .
Board works ok but will not load XP even in safe mode from original HDD
Reloaded XP (upgrade from 9Cool on newly formated spare HDD
Attempted to download XP upgrades from microsoft, but only got "no downloads available for your computer" . Could not activate by web so activated over phone. Attempted to download upgrades but got the same message.
Just do not beleive there are no upgrades for XP Pro!!!

Are microsoft treating this activation as install on second machine?Huh

Baiscally your allowed to install XP ona completly different hardware setup every 6 months I think if you make changes then some fo the code will be the same (ie hdd serial number etc)

XP is bases around the HDD controller so changinghte MOBO often completly screws it up Sad
