If your objective is to reinstall the operating system there are ways to accomplish that.

 

One way is to start tapping the F11 key immediately after presswing the notebook power button. That will invoke the Recovery Manager unless you deleted the Recovery partition or have done something to the original disk partition scheme. In Recovery Manager simply choose to recover your PC to the original operating system

 

You may also order a recovery disk set from HP.

 

Best regards,

erico

Since you don't have a Recovery disc set then I suggest you follow my second suggestion and order a Recovery disc set for your notebook.
