That will depend how well you can sell your story to the Microsoft activation center.
Normally, when you do a clean install on the SAME mobo, you activate with the product key that is on the COA sticker (which is somewhere on your box). That may even work with a new mobo too - may ??? If it does not work, you have to call MS and they will activate or not depending how well you can sell your story.
