    Time to phone M$ and plead your case. Shouldn't a problem in getting activated. You should have that option when you try to activate.

    You didn't happen to buy the OEM version.
    If you did one of the limitations of the OEM is that it can only be installed on one computer and is not transferable to another computer. Replacing the MB triggers the limitation.
    If you have the retail DVD then a call to M$ may be in order.
    Call them for either scenario.
