No, in most cases, scripted OEM OS exceptions aside, simply boot to the new MOBO and install the updated and correct drivers per your OS {Vista 32-bit/x86} from the NEW MOBO's website. A non OEM Windows installation has full drivers and libraries - same as any installation.

You will have to re-activate Windows from Microsoft; perhaps online or maybe from calling them directly - you'll be prompted.
