Presuming the physical drives can be swapped, your larger issue is one of licensing.
With OEM PCs, like yours, the individual Windows license is tied to the PC, not to the owner. So, even if the drive does connect and Windows Boots up, the license will be invalid and HP will not provide you a new license.
