It's possible, but legally you may get your company in hot water. Check your company's Windows server licensing to see if it allows you to install on multiple systems.
Obviously if you switch the motherboard with an identical board (and other hardware) you'll have less problems from a technical standpoint.
There are lots of cloning solutions out there: Acronis, Norton (both commercial), G4L (Ghost for Linux - which also does NTFS), G4U, etc. There are a couple of open source CDs on distrowatch.com with more complete cloning solutions if you want to go the open source route.
