    What does "can't get it to work" mean exactly?

    Did you replace it with the same motherboard from the mfg, the OEM OS license is contained in the BIOS of the motherboard, toss the board there goes your OEM OS license. If you replaced with a different motherboard, you can try pleading with MS to activate it with your COA number. The Vista forum here deals with modding BIOS strings and making your own royality OEM install CD.
