According to the HP specs page, your model came with a 1TB laptop SATA HDD.  The good news is that any SATA SSD can be used to replace it because they are the same size and use the same connectors.

 

When you get the SSD, consider following the instructions below to CLONE the existing drive.  If that works, you then simply swap the drives and you will be up and running again.

 

My suggestion, is if you want to create recovery media for Win10, then consider using a third-party solution known as Macrium Reflect (MR).

What I recommend is the following:
1) Download and install Macrium Reflect (MR) from here: https://www.macrium.com/reflectfree
2) Connect the new drive to the PC using a USB-to-SSD drive adapter (like the one illustrated below)
3) Follow the instructions in this link: http://knowledgebase.macrium.com/display/KNOW/Cloning+a+disk
4) Shutdown the PC when done
5) Swap the drives and reboot the PC.

NOTE: To do this easily, the SDD has to be the same capacity as the HDD.  IF you get an SDD that is a lot smaller, then before you do the cloning, you have to shrink the largest partition on the HDD (usually the OS partition), to the size such that it, and the other partitions, fit easily on the SSD.


You should boot from the new drive without any problems.

Typical USB-to-SSD adapter:
