2 years ago#1
So my mom's got a new hp laptop and i offered to change out the HDD for an SSD for better performance. It's new, so there's nothing on it. I looked for the activation key, did some research and apparently it's OEM and embedded in the bios. People having problems like capacity of different hdd = windows 8 not installing and since there is no activation key, IDK what to do. Anyone help?
