Hi:

 

It is possible and very possible if the SSD you replaced the hard drive with is of a smaller capacity.

 

So...you can clean install W10 by making bootable installation media using the media creation tool at the link below.

 

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

 

After W10 has completed installing, you can install the drivers and available software from your PC's support page.

Hi:

 

if the built in system recovery program failed, you can make a bootable USB recovery drive using another Windows, PC, a 32 GB USB flash drive and the HP cloud recovery tool.  The recovery drive is equivalent to a factory reset.

 

Here is an info link for how to use that utility...

Hi Paul, I followed the instructions to the letter and “ The recovery attempt has failed” I have saved the log. 

Could it be that the recovery is failing because the original hard drive has been replaced with a SSD ?

Thanks Paul, I have successfully installed W10 thank you. However I seem to be having some difficulty installing from HP support, e g I have downloaded HP Jump start but it doesn't seem to install, when I try to install I get a small black install screen but  it stays blank and the install doesn't seem to complete. 

 

Regards 

 

Peter

You're very welcome, Peter.

 

Unfortunately, I wouldn't be able to help you with that issue.

 

I recommend that you start a new discussion on that.

 

Doing a quick search, it seems to be unnecessary software, and is probably only supported on a HP factory image.
