That OS is almost certainly OEM. AS such, it is tied to the original motherboard, the HP. Upon seeing the new Lenovo, it deactivated itself.

Just go to web to reauthenticate, it will prob give you a error message and phone number to call, call and a computer will have you give the error number and ask how many computers it's installed on, reply ONE, and it will provide a new code - if not, need to call and get a person, explain what happen and they normally will provide a new code
