I just replaced a system board and need to brand it with the appropriate serial number.  How do I accomplish that?  I have software to run when I do that with Dells or Lenovos.  How can I do it with an HP?

Hi:
You cannot tattoo a HP notebook. It has to be done by an authorized HP tech service center where they have a DMI tool for that which is not available to the public.
You can tattoo some HP business desktops with this software, link below. It might work on HP consumer desktops but I don't know since I have never tried it on one.

This program makes a bootable floppy disk, and cannot be installed via any other method than a FDD or USB FDD.
It works on many other HP business desktops other than those listed. It has been used successfully in PC's up to a couple years old.
