Omen Obelisk Desktop 875-0034
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I've had this since 2019, and at this point I would like to do a fresh, clean install of Windows 10. I am (somewhat) PC savvy, and have done this on other pcs. My Omen Obelisk Desktop 875-0034 is basically still stock as when purchased, I did add 1 SSD, and 1 stick of memory.

 For my Omen Obelisk Desktop 875-0034, is there any additional software (NEEDED or AVAILABE from HP) that I should also obtain. Such as any drivers for motherboard or other hardware? Will I also still be able to obtain all the HP programs that came originally installed?

  I would like to do this because as of now, all the HP support programs and programs stopped working, I cannot access the Microsoft store, I cannot run the XBOX LIVE pc app, and other apps, and other Microsoft apps, and some (Windows 10) SERVICES don't run.

 I have deleted plenty over the years, probably deleted files I should not have.

THANK YOU for your advise.

-Jeff Z.

Hi:

 

If you clean install W10, you will only be able to get the drivers and available software from your PC's support page.

An alternative method to install W10 would be to use the HP cloud recovery tool to create a bootable USB recovery drive that will reinstall W10, the drivers and the software that originally came with your PC.

 

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