I bought a floor model hp omen i7-7700, I'm going to pick it up and would like too know how to reset it back to factory setting, and what I'm worried about reinstalling windows 10? Is there anything else I should do it being a floor model and all? It's going to be a gift for my daughter.
When you get the machine, hook it up to the internet and let it update. This will ensure it gets registered with Microsoft the first time. Then you can make the HP USB Recovery from there.
how do I reinstall windows if I cant find it? can I make the USB recovery boot file from the computer that is being recovered?
If the HP USB Recovery says you cannot make another copy, someone already created it at the store perhaps. Not likely to happen though. In such case, use that computer to create an ISO of Windows directly from Microsoft. This is the link to grab the ISO creation tool and make a generic installer. It will also recognize your embedded key when you get ready to install, so no need to enter the numbers.
