I'm not sure what you're asking. Are you asking where the Product Key is stored after installing Windows?

If you change the motherboard or hard drive the same product key will work, although you may need to phone Microsoft to re-activate it.

How to replace the motherboard on a computer that is running Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, or Windows 2000

If you have an OEM version of XP and change the motherboard to one that is not the same you may not be able to activate.
