At least in the US, Microsoft provides NO support for any issue with an OEM version of Windows. Period! Unless, you opt to pay the per incident fee.

Of course, HP is not going to provide a user with an activation code for a modified system either.

If you want to modify a system with an OEM license for Windows, and the system no longer accepts the license key, your only option is to buy a retail license. Or, switch to Linux.
