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. 




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?
