I have two computers. One is a HP P6820 and came with Windows 7 Operating System Recovery Disks. The other is an Intel DG35EC and has Windows XP Home Edition. How can I use The HP Recovery disks to install
Windows 7 unto the Intel computer replacing Windows XP? I tried using the HP OSR disks on the Intel computer to instal Windows 7 but it didn't
work.

Buy a new Windows 7 OS for the second computer. Intel DG35EC is not a computer model, it's a motherboard.

You can't use OEM disks from one vendor on another computer, first it's against the license agreement. Second, most disks have a BIOS check in them and just won't run on any other computer.
