Hi:

 

I have already answered your question at the link below.

 

Solved: Re: Question - HP Support Community - 8172790

 

The HP tools is not necessary for the operation of your PC.

 

All it does is have the built in diagnostics program that you run from the F2 menu.

 

I gave you the link to make a bootable diagnostics key which is even better than the one found in the HP tools F2 menu.

You're very welcome.

 

I have deleted all of the partitions on my HP PC's that had the tools, recovery...everything.

 

As a matter of fact, if you look at your notebook's support page, under the W10 drivers section, HP gives you the same diagnostics link I gave you.

Now, if you want to try installing the HP tools diagnostics software, you would have to use the version for Windows 8.1 and see if it creates the folder for you.

 

This package provides the HP UEFI Support Environment for the supported notebook models and operating systems. HP UEFI Support Environment provides UEFI based hardware diagnostics used to validate if a system is functioning correctly. Additional support is provided for updating and managing the system BIOS and other device firmware on the system.
