lists device-drivers for Windows 7 and 8 (64-bit).
Presumably, Microsoft "knows" about your model of computer, and has included the necessary device-drivers into the Windows 10 distribution. Thus, the HP web-site does not need to "duplicate" the information onto their web-site.
Download Windows 10, for free, via: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10
and "test-install" it -- just "skip" entering the 25-character product-key.
Windows 10 will run, for a few days.
You can then open Device Manager, to see if any device-drivers are "missing".
Run Windows Update, to see if Windows Update will find/download/install those device-drivers.

> It's about Windows 10 specially written for Workstations.
It's quite possible that Microsoft Windows is a "cumulative" piece of software, namely that all the code added to Windows XP to produce Windows Vista, or added to Windows Vista to produce Windows 7, or added to Windows 7 to produce Windows 8, is still present in Windows 10.
Because Windows 7 & 8 are supported for the hardware of your HP workstation, there is a strong expectation that Windows 10 will also support the hardware of your HP workstation.
Of course, there are exceptions -- my Lenovo Thinkpad tablet has a processor that is supported by the '1607' release of Windows 10, but, by Microsoft's declaration, later releases of Windows 10 ('1611', '1703', '1709', '1804') contain software that DOES NOT RUN on the processor in this tablet.
So, I repeat: for "free", give Windows 10 a "test-drive" on your hardware. That's the only way to achieve certainty.

It works very fine. I buyed it from a reseller with windows 10 on it (with Licence).
