You should be able to activate Windows 11 using the W10 product key in your notebook's BIOS.
Install the free showkey plus app from the Microsoft store that will show you the W10 OEM product key in your notebook's BIOS
Change the installed key the report shows (if there is one) to the OEM product key that the report gave you.

I installed the software but it did not solve the problem.
I put the key again but it did not accept it.
I also tried to get the key from cmd using this comand
wmic path softwarelicensingservice get OA3xOriginalProductKey
but it didn't show may product key

Sorry, that didn't work.
I don't know why it didn't so the only other suggestion I can offer would be to use the HP cloud recovery client utility to make a bootable USB recovery drive and reinstall Windows.
I have attached the instructions for how to use the utility, below.
