Greetings,

Welcome to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.

 

The Lubin motherboard (MB) (Link) installed in your PC is not a standard uATX MB or mini ATX MB.

 

Doing this upgrade depends on how the rear I/O shield is attached to the case and whether the chassis has the correct standoffs to match a retail replacement MB. You may have get a new Windows product key if you can successfully replace the Lubin MB.

 

Regards

Hi,

 

You are probably going to have a problem installing a retail MB in your PC. So the following point of interest is academic.

 

You are changing the processor and the MB. This is usually a big red flag to Microsoft Activation Servers.

 

The HP factory operating system is not transferable to a new PC. 

 

Changing the MB and the processor is like building a new PC. Your PC is not a HP PC anymore.

 

Regards
