Windows 7: Need help from another HP owner - PID no longer valid

Windows 7
Need help from another HP owner - PID no longer valid

Anyone still using their default HP installed OS, I need help getting the OEM PID to use as my PID expired when migrating from Vista -> Windows 7 - Back to Vista.

If you do have your oringal OS still isntalled, you are not actually using the PID on the computer case, but a default OEM PID. My specific computer is an HP m8100y, but I believe any HP computer with PID support would do.

If you are willing to help me out, please PM me and I can tell you where to find the OEM PID. I will provide proof that I own a PID compliant HP machine. The reason I can't use my own OEM is I never burned the restore CDs and the OEM cds won't fully install before crapping out (and HP customer support can't do anything other than to tell me to keep trying).

Any help is greately appreciated.
