I have had the same thing happen with a Dell

The owner lost her dell supplied windows disk

I had install windows from another disk
I used the OEM code on the PC

Then contacted Microsoft told them what had happened

The result
The helped me activate Windows

You did nothing wrong
The bios update was to fix your computer
It?s the same thing as a faulty Motherboard

As for HP they sold you the computer
Hp can only refuse to cover the warranty

Microsoft supplied the licence
Anyway just ask MS if you don?t know what to do
All they can say is no
