can i do a clean install of windows 10 after replacing the hard drive

HP Recommended
HP ENVY 17m-ae011dx & HP Jaguar 15-bs060wm
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am upgrading the RAM and installing new SSD's on both laptops and want to do a clean install on both without all of the bloatware that HP adds.  Can I use the HP cloud recovery tool to do a clean install?

If so, is there a detailed procedure for this available. I'm trying to avoid buying 2 new full versions of Windows 10.


This question is for both of the following laptops:

HP ENVY 17m-ae011dx              &            HP Jaguar 15-bs060wm

Yes. Please use the following instruction



To download and create Windows 10 installation media then install to your machine. Windows 10 will activate itself using the embedded key in BIOS of your machine.
