My HD crashed, without recovery media. What’s the easiest way to get my drivers and OS loaded?

Diagnostics show that my HD is trashed.  I don’t have OS recovery ability or media.  How can I load my OS and original configuration software onto the new HD?

Use another PC with W7 64 bit or newer and a 32 GB USB flash drive, with the HP cloud recovery tool to create a bootable USB recovery drive that will reinstall W10, the drivers and the software that originally came with your notebook.


Here is an info link for how to use that utility...
