I recommend that you contact the HP executive team at the link below...


Executive Team: CEO email | HP® Official Site


You won't be able to upload the file, but someone from HP will contact you, and should provide you with further instructions.


If you need to reinstall W10, you can also use the Media creation tool to create a bootable USB installation flash drive, clean install W10, and then install the drivers and available software from your notebook's support page.

Is the download destination of the tool correct?


Since the link is different depending on the model, you may not be able to create it if the tool is different.
