Your PC originally came with Windows 8.1 from HP.


You can make your own W10 installation media for free by using the media creation tool at the link below.


If you are asked to enter a product key during the installation process, select the 'I don't have a product key' option, and W10 will install and automatically activate once you are connected to the internet.


Then you can install the drivers and available software from your PC's support page.
