I've have a HP 15s-fq1054ns, which comes with Freedos. I'm trying to install Windows 10 x64 without luck. I've followed these steps:
- Create a USB boot disk for Windows 10 x64 with the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool.
- Changed in the UEFI/BIOS the boot order to have the USB first.
- Booted into Windows and started installing. Then I get a message about missing drivers. (It's in Spanish, so I don't copy it here).
- I've been to the drivers page for the model (https://support.hp.com/es-es/drivers/selfservice/hp-15s-fq1000-laptop-pc-series/29322771/model/31971...) and downloaded the drivers. I've extracted the .exe files and copy them to another USB drive.
- In the Windows installation screen where I get the message about the missing drivers, I try to install all the drivers I can find in the extracted files. Their name is shown in the screen, but I when I click "Next" I get a message saying something like "no new drivers found".
Any ideas about what can I do?
Thanks in advance!

It strikes me that freedos would be on a legacy/mbr option?
If so I would want to switch to Secure/GPT and format the drive accordingly.
I would add the Folder/Directory HP_Drvrs to my W10 install USB and place the HP stuff therein. So everything is on the same USB and accessible from the X:
Is this one of them?

Thank you very much for your help and sorry for not getting back at you sooner.
I tried putting the drivers on the install USB, but they didn't show up. Anyway, I was able to access them in another USB drive, but that didn't work.
The only way I was able to install Windows 10 was by changing the BIOS to legacy mode and using a Windows USB installation created in MBR mode with Rufus.
Thank you again for your help!
