Hi:

 

Your notebook came from HP with FreeDOS, which means that you need to have your own copy of W8.1 with a valid product key in order to activate Windows.

Hi:

 

Unfortunately, no one here can help you with that, because your notebook came with FreeDOS not Windows, so there is no product key in the BIOS like there are with the PC's that came with Windows from HP.
