You can plug the drive in with Windows XP Home.
However, Windows normally gets confused when the motherboard has
changed and a repair installation can usually solve it. You
will need the original CD to do that.
"XP/2000 has problems when changing motherboards.
What you have to do is: Boot from the XP CD, skip past the screen that asks
if you want to 'repair using recovery console.' The next screen or perhaps
the one following should ask whether you want to do a 'repair install' or a
'clean install.' Choose 'repair.' It may ask for the product 'key,' the 25
alpha-numeric characters you entered with your first install. "
