Yes with a phone call Microsoft can do anything if they so desire.
In my little experience with calls to Microsoft on such matters the motherboard had to be a matching board. Not a upgrade. Like I stated; Microsoft will make that decision.

Just a pointer, uATX is the same as mATX, miniATX. The μ symbol means "Micro" in this case. They are, in general, 9.6" x 8", sometimes less than 8.

That's about $122 with shipping, you could have got a new board cheaper from a US source with a workable warranty.

Hmm hope it goes ok for you Screwy I am VERY wary of Ebay stuff mate too but if that is the only way you have of getting one then I suppose you have not much choice.

What about a new build stuff is really quite cheap at the moment or so it seems in the US

All uATX/mATX boards have the same screw pattern. That was my point in a previous post.
