yes have to reinstall. it would sometime work with xp sp1, but they purposely made sp2, so that it won't work if you change too much hardware

the main reason it wont work is because of you changing the mobo, you can upgrade the rest without reinstalling.

Replace motherboard = 98% chance you will need to reinstall XP

Ram, CPU, Display Card = You don't need to reinstall XP
