I wanted to factory reset my laptop, cause it got too slow and a lot of unused registries and data which I didn't need. So I went to HP recovery manager and factory resetted my laptop. I forgot to make a recovery USB drive, cause I thought it doesn't need one. The day after that day I woke up and checked my laptop, and it brought this screen. I don't have recovery USB , what can I do to continue the factory reset?

If your notebook was made in 2016 or later you may be able to use the HP cloud recovery client tool to create a bootable recovery USB flash drive.


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