If it isn't the same board, then it sounds right. If it is the same board then a reinstall shouldn't be necessary., except if it is an OEM version of windows without the normal Installation CD's, but rather some sort of recovery CD's. Such manufacturers sometimes tie the windows version to the serial number of the mainboard.
