Windows 7: HP Laptop owners: 2nd location of COA on HP Laptop

You stumped me?

. to back up the OEM activation with any software that is freely available on the net,

I though you entered a number when asked? You need software? Is it an automatic thing?

When I loaded the OEM, it asked me for the COA, I think, but
Gregrocker said to enter after the load and later.

Can you give an example? of one? or what it is like or how to search for it?

I assume this software, we enter our COA number in it? Like on a flash drive and exe and it activate the OS with our COA we entered into it?

Yep, jagman55, as derekimo rightly pointed out, Greg has already told you that you have to research yourself. ( I hadn't seen that other thread)

I did that when I got my DELL laptop. I read all about OEM activation and during that course of my own research I came across various ways of backing up and restoring the OEM activation ( the OEM-SLP key and the digitally signed MS certificate ), manually as well as through software from a running OEM installation. I even came across many discussions on official Microsoft Forums as well as the OEM forums (which I have bookmarked and kept), where these software tools are mentioned as a means of doing a clean install preserving OEM activation and also changing over from 32bit to 64bit (same edition) and vice versa.

I regret I can't be more helpful than what is aforesaid except repeating make your own search on backing up and restoring OEM activation as greg had advised.
