HT cores are logical processors with own gp registers, apic and access to XMMn/YMMn SIMD unit.Those cores are seen by OS as a processing units which are availabe for OS thread scheduling.

OS threads are like a containers which encapsulate streams of basic units of execution(machine code and data).Such a threads are represented by its own context two stacks(user and kernel mode) and various internal data structures.
