Alright, well isn't windows 7 activated on my HDD?
And what about getting another hp motherboard? Will it be easier? And will I get windows 7?
I really appreciate the help.
It's activated currently, yes, but as soon as you switch over to the new board, it will try to validate it and fail, with no legal way to reactivate it.
It doesn't matter what motherboard it is because of the serial number of the board. If it's a different board (even the exact same type), it'll fail validation (although if it was a warranty replacement kind of thing, I'm sure HP and Microsoft would let you do that).
But no, you wouldn't get another copy of Windows just by getting another HP board.
