hi guys can anybody help, have a full desktop as a server next to the tv however its a little big and lights up like a chirstmas tree so i have been looking for a barebones shuttle to switch all the harware over.
i have found a barebones on ebay that will take my amd 64x2 3800+ processor and was wondering if i switched over the hard drive would my windows xp boot as normal on the new motherboard or would i have to install it all again from scratch, never used barebones before so sorry if its a stupid question

You'll almost certainly need to reinstall and won't be able to use your current license if its an OEM (as in supplied with a system) license as its tied to the motherboard...
It doesn't necessarily need a fresh reinstall. Some will work with just a straight swap, and some will need a "Repair" from the Windows Disk, keeping all programs etc.
