I current computer runs Windows XP Professional, at the end of the week all the parts are coming and I am building another PC, if I uninstall Windows XP on this computer and put Windows Server 2003 on, then Install XP on the new machine, is that legal? If so how will WPA know what I have done?

if its only installed on one computer then there is/will be no problem.

unless of course its an oem version of windows.it may only be licensed for your current motherboard.

you don't try to activate the same copy of WinXP on two computers you will be OK.
