Download the HP Cloud Recovery utility.  You will need a 32 GB USB flash drive.



Once you have the Recovery flash drive created you can boot to it and reinstall Window 7.


I found that link to the HP Cloud Recovery utility on the support portal for your notebook at the link below this line.

Hi, @snowbrian55555 


Your PC is not supported by the HP cloud recovery tool, since it was manufactured well before 2016.


If you don't have the original disk, or if it was damaged which is why you replaced it, or you would prefer to reinstall W7 on the new drive, you have two options...


1.  Order W7 recovery media from this vendor at the link below.

2. If you can read all 25 characters of the W7 Home Premium product key on your notebook's case, make your own plain W7 64 bit installation media.


Download the W7 Home Premium 64 bit ISO file from the link below, toward the bottom of the page.

Use the Microsoft tool that I zipped up and attached below that you will need to transfer the ISO file to a DVD or USB flash drive so that it is bootable, or you can use a different utility for this purpose such as Rufus.


After W7 has completed installing you can install the drivers and available software from your PC's support page.
