Hi,

What you can do is to create a bootable pendrive with the OS on it. You will need another PC where you can download the media creation tool from Microsoft and run to create the USB. There is an explanation on the <Microsoft page

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

 

You will then boot the PC from the USB drive and then clean install the OS on the notebook. During the installation procedure choose custom install and delete all partitions. Install in unallocated space.

After installation completely update the PC and Windows will find the necessary drivers.

some further info:
