What is included in the 'Recovery Media' sold on HP's website?

HP 15-da0020nr
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

TL;DR: Does the 16G USB - Windows 10 64-bit Recovery Kit include the Windows 10 OS? 

 

Longer, slightly more humorous explanation:
My wife's laptop wouldn't boot at all, so I ran the diagnostics tool. It says there is no HDD. I open it up and look at it and say, "yes there is. It's right there." The laptop insists that no such thing exists. And my warranty was up 4 months ago. 

 

Shoot.

 

Well, we didn't create any bootable back up/recovery disks, so I go and find some new hard drive options. Then I try and figure out how to get Windows 10. I spent an hour on Microsoft's site and still can't figure out how to get a physical copy. I don't have an OS, so I can't get a browser started to download it on to the laptop.

 

I see that HP sells a 16G USB - Windows 10 64-bit Recovery Kit. But I can't find anything that tells me what is on it. Does that include the OS?

It should include Software on Software Section. Why you have to buy, you can simply use Cloud Recovery tool
