Hello, This is my first post, here's the story
last year I purchased a regular walmart computer HP p6210y
Throughout the year I bought upgrades, including a new mobo
Now I reinstalled windows because the OS was tied to the mobo
and I have a spare mobo to do something with, my parents need a new computer
and i was wondering that if i buy the rest of the parts, can i use this old motherboard
in the new custom computer? and if i have a copy of windows 7 from MSDN (through my school)
can i install it on that new one if i already have it on my original PC?

You can build around the HP board no problem!
Your Copy of windows is for one PC only but the old OS that came with the HP should work!

I have already installed it on two seperate computers so far, I have a feeling it is a Developers copy, so it doesn't have the limit on it. I'm very glad to know that the HP mobo won't be an issue, but even if i buy another copy of windows, would that work on this mobo? or do i need a specific code?

No any copy of Windows should work even yours if it is developers version.
