Specs: Visa, HP Slimline
I'm working on an HP S3300F Slimline. The HD Crashed so therefore the Recovery partition is gone. I bought a new HD for it, but I do not have the disc. It came with Vista Home Premium. HP wants $30 for the disc. I have access to a Vista Home Premium retail disc - will the HP Product Key on the side of the machine work with that, or does it HAVE to be the HP OEM version?

You won't be able to activate it with the old key. It isn't a real microsoft key.

Time to spend either the $30 or get Windows 7 for a lot more.
