Change Bios configuration

I swapped out a HP 2000 laptop motherboard and need to program the bios.  It is asking for Product name, Product Serial Number and System Board- Product Number.

you can use the HP HP Customer Support product identification, which will detect your motherboard, its components and therefore its drivers, which will bios driver one of them.

if bios driver is not there, try selecting previous OS (Win 7 or 8.1) ,,,

If you want to replicate the information from the old system into the new one, then it will be necessary to reinstall the old motherboard, bring it up one last time, and extract that information from the BIOS setup pages.  This probably will not prevent Windows wanting to reauthorize when it starts up on the replacement motherboard, though; each laptop BIOS has an identifier unique to that motherboard.

If you don't want to replicate the information from the old system into the new one then you should be able to ignore setting those fields, save the setup, and exit to boot Windows for the first time on the new motherboard.

Worried about phishing attacks?

90% of attacks start with a phish. It’s critical that IT admins and MSSPs have the right security in place to protect their end users from these phishing attacks. Check out our latest feature brief for tips and tricks to keep your employees off a hackers line!

If you go ti and enter your machine serial number you can get all that information, or post the serial number label and I'll look it up for you.

As Dr. Klahn says you can actually enter anything you like and it will still work, it only really matters if you  phone HP for support and they ask you to tell them the machine serial number and you look it up in BIOS and it says FOOBAR because that's what you typed when prompted.

System board product number is actually printed on it somewhere, it will be 6 digits followed by -001 most likely.
