hard drive crash

HP Recommended
pavillion 22A113W
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The hard drive crashed on my pavillion 22A113W . I'm planning to replace the hard drive but cannot locate my recovery drive.

How can I reinstall windows 10. Also, thinking of replacing it with an SSD anyone have any suggestions on which one to buy?

You can reinstall W10 for free by making a bootable USB installation flash drive using the Media creation tool at the link below.


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


Or you can order recovery media for your PC from HP at the link below...


In order for the recovery media to work you would need to buy a drive of the same capacity as the one that died on you.


You can buy any size SSD you want if you use the media creation tool to reinstall W10.


SSD:  I recommend this one...


You will need to buy a 3.5" to 2.5" hard drive adapter.


They make many different styles, so I recommend you open up the PC and see which one would work best for your situation.


Here is the link to the service manual...
