    If its the same board and all is working, I would just leave it as it is, no need to re-install.

  3. you will likely have to revalidate windows as you changed the motherboard which would invalidate the key.

    yer rite he wont have to re install but he will have to reactivate windows and they he will have to pay for.
    your windows key is tied to your motherboards mac address among other things. and constitutes a big enough change to the system (even though its the same make and model) that windows will become invalidated.
