Using OEM (HP) Serial with a Windows 7 Disk


  • So I want to install a fresh copy of Windows 7 on my HP computer to a new SSD I have just purchased. When I try to use the recovery disk, it says the hard drive installed is not the original one shipped with a computer, so I can't continue. I have a copy of Windows 7 Home Premium x64 and was wondering if I could use the serial on the HP computer to install Windows? The computer shipped with Windows 7 Home Premium x64.
