Hello @Bcarmody 

You can just reinstall Windows 10 via the standard means. For details, please check the attached PDF file below.

 

After you reinstall Windows, download/install HP Image Assistant >> https://support.hp.com/lt-en/document/c05820785

Run it to download and install all drivers, recommended BIOS update, software, HP ESU, etc

 

HP Cloud Recovery exists for reinstalling to factory default condition but it does not support this Zbook model (which is somewhat old model). Your nest option is clean vanilla WIndows installation.

 

Hope this helps
