Is it possible to replace a motherboard and CPU without losing data? I have Win Xp Pro installed on one of the two hard drives, the other is also defectie. I would like to transfer this hard drive, cd and dvd writers into a new box or if at all possible just replace the mothercoard and CPU in the old box. Either way my hope is to retain all the programmes and if possible the operating system as well. I have a legal copy of the XP Pro that is installed.
