Put the disk in the CD and reboot your system. If you get a System Restore prompt then this is the CD.

It depends. Many OEM systems restore disks have a BIOS recognition algorithm that issues a STOP event upon a recognition error and thus you would need a restore disk from an HP machine.

I would think that any HP Restore disk for the same model (or Processor) should well be fine. You would have to manually re-enumerate and install some hardware drivers possibly though.

windows recently changed their policy about OEM licences. now a mobo change constitutes a new PC (i think it used to be 1 piece intact), so even if u manage to get the re-install going u will need to watch what u say when u ask for a new activation code. but i'm sure the reason for the upgrade was a power surge, and not just because u wanted a new mobo .
It goes to eleven

Even a power surge will not likely get a "free" re-install from M$. They probably won't care why the board was changed. And you may not be able to lie. Xp is pretty invasive, it will be able to TELL that a board was changed, and it will likely communicate that to customer service when you call them for re-activation.....and they will likely tell you to buy a new copy.

Not saying don't try, I mean, if you try and they say ok then you're good......but don't count on it.
