No replies because I don't think you have been clear on what you are looking to accomplish, or why.

SO it looks like what your saying is you want to take out the motherboard in the HTPC and put the HP Pavilion motherboard into the HTPC.

 

This should be possible as the HTPC supports both uATX and regular ATX sizes.  But you really do not post any questions.  So I am not sure where to help you.  It also appears you want to use a laptop connected to the 'new' HTPC after you have 'built it' so that you can use it as a backup/restore option.  This too seems possible just use windows backup to schedule back-ups to the F: drive.

Im sorry, I have not been clear. I would like to swap the MBs of the two cases. I would also like to put an operating system on the motherboard from the medialab. 

 

I would also like to create a backup on a laptop HD that I have connected to the HP MB.

 

Eventually I would like to end up with my HP MB in the medialab, and be able to control it with a tablet. This will be my HTPC that I want to also game on.

 

The HP case will hold the mozart medialab MB and be a normal pc. I have a videocard and tunercard installed on the medialab PC. This will also play basic games like the sims and goat simulator. 

 

So the question is, how do I approach this MB swap?

The medialab doesnt have the 'screen and remote' so where can I find a cheap one/alternative one?
