Default OEM Windows Question

I have an HP computer that came with Windows. I'm upgrading my computer, but keeping the same hard drive. The dood at the computer store says he can make the same Windows work with the new computer.

How is this done?

Could anyone explain to me how to do it?

Everything. I'm only keeping the hard drive.

But isn't the Windows designed to only work with the old motherboard? I hear it's specified somewhere in the bios.
