    I put on a legit version of XP MCE on a home computer about 2 years ago.

    The computer has started to fail - could be a m/board or H/drive problem.

    I'm getting fed up of it intermittently working and am looking to upgrade with a new mb, cpu, hd & graphics card.

    My question concerns re-installation of the MCE - originally registered with microsoft and updated regularly.

    Can I just reinstall onto the new hardware, or is there a catch?

    Thanks

    You should be able to install and activate it without any problem, however you may be required to do a telephone activation.
