Unable to recover from windows 10

HP Recommended
Elite 8300 SFF
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The PC was refurbished to windows 10 and I got a blue screen now asking for the installation media and when I inserted the USB flash drive it tells me that the hard drive is smaller than the required to recover the system and then quit the whole process.

@Torito_123 

Your dealing with an old unit that was refurbished. No way of knowing what was originally installed. Where did the WIN 10 USB flash drive originate from ? The circa 2012 HP 8300 series had different models, and the SFF starts on page 49.  Storage is listed on   page 54 .
