    Since there is no HP key but plenty of working BIOSes how would I activate an HP computer with windows 7?

    Use modded BIOS, matching cert & any key matching your version of Win7.

    Or to be safe install Home premium as there is a HP key for it here.

    So see if you already have SLIC 2.1 table in your bios. If not then see if there is one here already modded. Then install win 7 Home Premium and install HP cert and use the Home Premium key.

    It has been stated many times in these forums - the key only matches the version of 7 installed - ie Ultimate, Home Premium etc.

    The cert and SLIC must match.

    So yes any Ultimate key will work etc.

    Its nice, but irrelevant, to match the key to the modded BIOS you may have but I used the leaked Lenovo key with a Dell SLIC until I found the Dell key.
