I have just replaced our son HD because it died. Since I do not have the recovery disks, I wonder what I need to to to re-install window and all the drivers.
Thank you for your assistance; much appreciated!

If your PC is a 2016 model or newer, you should see if you can make a bootable USB recovery drive using the HP cloud recovery tool on a working PC.
The recovery drive can then be used to install Win10 and the HP drivers and utilities that originally came with your PC.

Your PC is not supported by the HP cloud recovery tool.
You have two options:
Since HP no longer sells recovery media for your notebook, you would have to order it from this non-HP vendor...
Or you can reinstall W10 for free by making bootable installation media using the media creation tool from the link below...
After W10 has completed installing, you can install the drivers and available software from your notebook's support page.
You will not need a product key to reinstall W10.
