Had to replace hard drive and need the operating system

HP Recommended
hp 23 Envy All-in-one PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I had to replace the hard drive on my computer and I don't know what to do next. How will I get the operating system back on the new hard drive? I guess there is no way to get it from the corrupt old hard drive. thanks for your help.

Your guess is correct.


If your PC is a 2016 model or newer, you should see if you can make a bootable USB recovery drive using the HP cloud recovery tool on a working PC.

The recovery drive can then be used to install Win10 and the HP drivers and utilities that originally came with your PC.


You will need a working PC and a 8GB USB stick to hold the recovery files.
