Hi. I ordered a new motherboard and case for my HP Omen 880. I assume I have to reinstall Windows 10 afterwards, but I am a bit concerned about how my USB-stick with the Windows 10-installation (which I I created with the preinstalled HP-helper utilities once) is about to "react". I guess the motherboard itself is what identifies the HP Omen as a HP Omen, so this is then basically no HP Omen anymore (changed HDD, GPU, power supply as well).
Hence: how would I install my Windows 10-license or use my Windows 10-key, that came with the original HP Omen 880, on my very-hard-modified system?

Your WIN 10 digital license is linked to the original motherboard. You will have to purchase a "new" retail WIN 10.
