Hard disk completely crashed and had to be replaced, no optane memory option, how to recover?

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion x360 - 11m-ad113dx

My daughter's HP Pavilion x360's hard drive crashed.  I had to replace it.  I tried the recovery process here (, but I don't have an Optane memory option.  When I try holding Windows-B down during a reboot, it says there is an error for BIOS recovery (BIOS recovery files not found) and asks to Please plug BIOS recovery USB flash drive, which I don't have.  Where do I get that BIOS recovery USB flash drive?

The parts list does not mention an optane, only a Hdd.

BIOS USB you make/create yourself...

Hopefully one of these documents will cover (and solve) your problem...


There are TWO BIOS updates available..

Therefore there must be TWO Main Board variants and it is vital to choose the correct one.



From 2016 onwards there is a possible recovery option via the cloud...
HP Consumer PCs - Using the HP Cloud Recovery Tool (Windows 7 & 10)
This may require another PC. Find and Download your .iso from…
Expand/Extract/Burn the iso Image onto a DVD/USB as needed.
Microsoft’s Creator Tool will make the required DVD or USB.
