You have to buy a new copy of windows.
maybe. Some have done it and have had no problems but most likely you will get driver conflicts that will cause you headaches. the other thing will be windows it self might need to be reactivated do to all the hardware changes.
Your OEM license agreement with HP means you cannot move that copy of Windows to another PC. You will need to purchase a new copy.
