Is there a command to get the HP power plan?

HP Recommended
HP Gaming Pavilion - 15-cx0056wm
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am going to reinstall windows. but I want to keep all the HP software so I will have to reinstall it. One thing, I won't get the option for HP's power plan. Is there a way to get the power plan on Windows 10?

The ONLY way to get all the HP software is to install from HP media -- you can not download and install the stuff individually.

 

If your PC is a 2016 model or newer, you should see if you can make a bootable USB recovery drive using the HP cloud recovery tool on a working PC.

The recovery drive can then be used to install Win10 and the HP drivers and utilities that originally came with your PC.

The problem is that I will have two drives, an M.2 SSD and the original hard drive. The SSD is 256 GB but the hard drive is 1 TB. So I won't be sure that HP will install Windows on my hard drive or my SSD.

HP Recovery Media expects a drive with much the same capacity as the original hard drive -- since it starts by reformatting the drive and recreating the ORIGINAL partitions, that will likely fail if you try to do it on a much smaller SSD.

So there is no way to get it? Even if I install all the HP drivers and software?
