A "FREE UPGRADE" WITH **NO DRIVERS** IS USELESS.

I REMEMBER WHEN HP AND MICROSOFT WERE TRUSTWORTHY BUSINESS PARTNERS.  CLEARLY, THOSE DAYS ARE GONE.

@BillM6 

Microsoft offered free Upgrade to Win10 for YEARS -- HOW is your NOT taking advantage of that and waiting until NOW a reflection on HP or Microsoft?  This is entirely YOUR decision, not theirs.

 

As to the question, you do it this way:

1) Use this link to download and create Win10 install media: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

2) insert that into your PC (do NOT boot from it), find the folder containing the media, select the setup.exe file, right-click that and select Run as Administrator.  This will start an in-place Upgrade which could then take a couple of hours to complete.

If you are presented with a window asking for a product key, down near the bottom is a entry you can click to skip that. Do NOT enter a product key, as it will reuse your existing key and when you finish and get back online, Windows will automatically activate.
