    it is just a copy that i did when bought the computer you know hp tells you to make copy of cd's in case any thing goes wrong so i can use them on a new hard drive

    Yes exactly the reason they suggested making it! The OS is licensed to the computer/motherboard so using it on the new HDD is within the license agreement!
